So, find out what the valid "end result" of the clientside script is, and
code for that.  If the JS sets a flag, find out what that flag is, and
construct your HTTP object accordingly.  You should be able to grok it from
the js/vbscript that the client is supposed execute, or use http
viewer/fiddler/etc to find out what your browser actually sends to the
server for a successful regular login.  There is no js/vb in the POST data.
