You need to push the "probe=" parameter to the cgi as well.  What you are
doing above is merely looking up already-registered networks in the SAR
database.  Again, you are NOT probing the networks through the SAR by
running the above lynx command!

To do what you want, you must use URLs of this form:

http://www.powertech.no/smurf/probe.cgi?network=1.2.3.4&probe=PROBE
                                                       ^^^^^^^^^^^^

Be careful with "&" in sh, and remember that probe= thing.
