I've managed to install gdata + the google command line tool, but fail to authenticate. Lynx automatically opens and presents the login screen, but after submitting the form same screen reappears. I've checked same thing locally and could easily read my mails with Lynx after login. I told Lynx to accept all cookies, with no success.
After quitting Lynx gcl offers a url to manually authenticate, but that appears to have no effect if done with another browser on a different machine.
I do not really have a clue how authentication works, but what might the difference between PA and local?
Is it an SSL thing?
