I assume the server throws a HTTP 302 redirection when it cannot identify your request as made from a browser (using HTTP_USER_AGENT). This is commonly done to avoid scripts scraping data automatically. The ideal way to solve this would be to switch the HTTP_USER_AGENT identifier to a standard browser (e.g. IE, Mozilla), but I'm not sure how to do this.
