the "action" in the form = {action 
"javascript:exit('/online/valdoc/cliksIndep_prcsslogin')"}

-which im assuming means i need javascript, which mechanize cant handle?

dave i tried your script,one i came up with was similar only without the 
rescue, and it raises the rescue "Not on login page or expected fields 
not found."

so im guessing i need to use copybara, which i will research and post 
after i figure it out. thank you guys for all the help so far
