Eqsl download

Trying to download qso's from Eqsl, I get Error: No such Username/Password found
What's wrong? Upload works fine...? Same call same passwd?

Any idea?

Qth nicname ok?
It is set at eqsl/settings there.

Eqsl has changed server and all functions may not work yet (they say at http login)

Similar, but different

I have a similar issue, but this time it is not solved by putting the QTH nickname correct.
Upload to eQSL works, but downloading doesn't and gives the message:
Size: 5140
Error: No such Username/Password found

(of course I have checked the password, and this is correct, besides, if it weren't, the upload would fail as well)

I started the program with --debug=1, and found the following html string, when the eQSL download was requested:
http://www.eqsl.cc/qslcard/DownloadInBox.cfm?UserName=mycall&Password=xx... (I replaced my call with 'mycall' and the password with xxxxxxxxx for obvious reasons)
When I paste this in my browser, I get a valid response, i.e. a html page opens where I can download an .adi file.
Anybody an idea how to fix this?

Solved

Ok, found the problem, although I do not completely understand it.
I had a password ending with an "&" character. This is used as an escape character in url, and apparently caused the problem.
Don't understand why it works on uploading, and gives problems on downloading???
Anyway, changed the password (now without "&") and now it works.

Hi!
Solved sounds good!

Yes, forbidden characters in password may cause problems. if I have password that has "& g t ;" without spaces it shows out >

Difference in up and download is that upload uses POST method and download GET method that may make the &-effect.
