Hi Rahul,

I was running into something similar yesterday, however, the issue came down to the fact I was using a customized zsh.  When I switched back to bash the command worked as expected.

Another option would be to put quotes around the entire URL path and see if you get the results you're looking for as I had to do that or it would error:

curl -D- -O -u UN:PW -X GET "http://localhost:8080/secure/attachment/10011/hello rahul.txt"




Hi Branden McElveen,

I am using OAuth and as you said I have tried with double quotes its thows an exception. currently its working if there is no special charector but if special charectors comes in file name  its fail to authenticate
