Downloading drivers form Dell


Recommended Posts

Any good tips how, to download this driver...


Dell U3421WE 34" Curved USB-C Monitor Driver | Driver Details | Dell Estonia


It works fine on browser and I can also parse that source code, but in Ketarin, I get completely different (page) source code, without any download links or anything usable.

Hi, @Etz!

They're using the Akamai Captcha, which is a javascript+cookie-based method of preventing exactly what you're trying to do. It looks like it should be possible to harvest sufficient information from the javascript and build the cookies manually, but it looks like it's going to be a nightmare to setup initially and a single change on their side will break it, so I wouldn't bother with it.
