Calibre Content Server d/l fails on Android

If I log into server with a Windows browser I can d/l books with no problems.

But on android browsers It always fails.

Has anyone d/l a book from the content server to an android device?

Tried asking on the Calibre forum but no luck.
log looks like this

192.168.1.5 - mogrith [18/Sep/2010:15:20:39] "GET /get/EPUB/Bull, Emma|Bear, Elizabeth|Monette, Sarah|Shetterly, Will|Downum, Amanda|Shipman, Stephan-Shadow Unit - Season 1_9407.EPUB HTTP/1.1" 200 1061457 "http://192.168.1.2:8080/mobile?num=25&search=epub&sort=date&order=descendi ng" "Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; U; Android 2.1-update1; en-us; Android for Telechips TCC8900 Evaluation Board (US) Build/ECLAIR) AppleWebKit/530.17 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/4.0 Mobile Safari/530.17"

It looks like I'm getting 401 errors.
10.4.2 401 Unauthorized


The request requires user authentication. The response MUST include a
WWW-Authenticate header field (section 14.47) containing a challenge
applicable to the requested resource. The client MAY repeat the
request with a suitable Authorization header field (section 14.8). If
the request already included Authorization credentials, then the 401
response indicates that authorization has been refused for those
credentials. If the 401 response contains the same challenge as the
prior response, and the user agent has already attempted
authentication at least once, then the user SHOULD be presented the
entity that was given in the response, since that entity might
include relevant diagnostic information. HTTP access authentication
is explained in "HTTP Authentication: Basic and Digest Access
Authentication" [43].

What server are you trying to download from?

The browsers on Android are limited and different from full-bore browsers. I've not tried purchasing or downloading via browser. Most sellers provide an app (kindle app) to do this.

I think they are running a Calibre content server on their own network.

I think you are right, which I sort of realized after posting, but still the same conditions apply.

It seems to be an error in the password logic.

If I remove password it will work. But if I turn on the password protection. The D/l fails. I get the pop-up for logging in when I first goto the page and can log in and see all the books.

Stupid question but what is the difference between Calibre the open-source book reader/converter and this server?

The content server is part of calibre.

Really? Wow, I never knew there was a content server; what is the content, stuff you have converted (mine stays on the HD) or other content for sale/download?

It's the stuff in your calibre library, exposed so that readers like Stanza and Aldiko can access the books from calibre. It also has an html interface.

You can start the content server from calibre's Preferences dialog, and then navigate to the server based on the machine name and port.

Download fails when server is password-protected
