Submitting via curl or java to test - working examples?

We are new to CrossRef and are trying to figure out how to submit our data.
I managed to get xml that passes when I submit it via the test website, but I find a working example that submits via http post, which is our requirement.

I have tried the examples on the web pages:
from: (POSTing files using our upload tool - Crossref)
Java
java -jar crossref-upload-tool.jar --user myid mypwd --host test.crossref.org --metadata crtest.xml

I have also tried the similar call from curl from https://0-www-crossref-org.lib.rivier.edu/documentation/member-setup/direct-deposit-xml/https-post/
curl -F 'operation=doMDUpload' -F 'login_id=myid' -F 'login_passwd=mypwd' -F 'fname=crtest.xml' https://0-test-crossref-org.lib.rivier.edu/servlet/deposit

Both of them output the same thing, which appears to be a login webpage!

I can’t seem to get an answer from Crossref support, so for the moment our Crossref development has come to a standstil!

Here is the output from the java submission

Hello,

That looks like it could be because a test account has not been created for your username yet. Test accounts are not created by default and would need to be created by us upon request.

If you can email us at support@crossref.org with your prefix and username we will get one setup for you.

Thanks,
Paul

But I can use the same account from the test.crossref.org domain website and upload and test xml (I did say that in the question)

So what needs to be done then?

Hello,

Sorry, I missed that you had manually been able to login to the test account and deposit the file to us. Do you login to the test account using an email address and password or shared role credentials and password?

If you are using an email address then you would need to use the format email@address.com/role in the login_id= section.

Thanks,
Paul
