I’m new to lynx and need to know the following:


1)      If a site is having multiple times of redirection (single or more), is it possible to extract the URL of the final site (target site)?

Eg: Assume redirects to, which inturn redirects to after about 3 seconds delay.  When I visit the site in lynx, it’ll be taken to and then to  My question is, is it possible for lynx to return the string, or how do I get the final URL string, i.e.  


2)      The link: “” works in UI based browsers, but not in lynx.  I’m wondering why it does not work in lynx. (Also saw many other sites which is displayed in UI browser, but not in lynx) How do I make lynx visit and display the contents in this site?  What I observe when I enter lynx is:


$ lynx

[2] 19773

[3] 19774

[4] 19775

[3]   Done                    offerid=136185.564321

[4]   Done                    type=15



Thanks in advance for any help,
