Get file from web page that require user and pass

I want to connect to a web site that require user name and password.
This adress holds a file, like a txt, image pdf and so on. I want to get
this payload. (Only going to check if the file is is empty or not).

I Have tryed a billion different ways, but i cant get it to work. I get
errors and stuff. The last error is like this.

/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:560:in initialize': getaddrinfo: Name or service not known (SocketError) from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:560:inopen’
from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:560:in connect' from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/timeout.rb:53:intimeout’

from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:1035:in request' from waste/waste.rb:20:inget_feed’

And here i even tryed a code som other guy made, it is on this site:

So how do i get the file that are stored on a web page that require
username and password?

I address authentication in my Twitter articles. Here’s one that show
you how to use basic_auth.

Without seeing your code, it’s hard to say where exactly you went wrong.
