Thanks a lot ChrisA
It works fine while logging in through browser.
Im using firefox, and have checked the headers with firebug.
I tried passing all the headers and it works while passing the cookie header.
My question is whether is it the correct way to try or can i write python script in such a way that it can handle it automatically.
Currently for checking login page, it would be fine.But when we go for testing registration page it become tedious.

I would also like to get your opinion on load testing with python script.

Thanks in advance,
