I did it this way:

lynx -auth=Rosika:'my_password'

Despite providing my credentials I won´t get logged in.
Lynx says: "HTTP/1.1 404 not found"
And the site itself says: "Oops! That page doesn’t exist or is private."

Someone correct me if I am wrong, but isn't the -auth flag in lynx used to
send the HTTP Authorization header with BASIC or DIGEST authentication?

The site in question looks looks like it using a post <FORM>...
So the solution would probably involve -post_data

Good Luck,
