Hello,
I have been trying for 5 days now with no success, and I really need somebody with more experience to help me.
What I want to do is login to Google Adwords without using their API. I simply need the login part. What I did is traced all httprequests (firebug from firefox) and I managed to do 99% of the code, but something does not work.

What I do is this:
1)Go to google login page: https://www.google.com/accounts/ServiceLogin
2)I successfully login (no problems here) and I am redirected to: https://www.google.com/accounts/ManageAccount
3)Than, I go to adwords by following the link: https://adwords.google.com/um/StartNewLogin?sourceid=awo&subid=ww-en-et-gaia

The problem appears at step 3. I set allowautoredirect=true in the httpwebrequest, and it simply goes in an endless redirect loop. I tried without autoredirect, and it still does not get me to the adwords page.

Here is what I have so far:
public string Login(string username, string password)
        {
            Misc.Download down = new Misc.Download(); // this is my helper class that deals with all requests (post, get)
            string res = down.download("https://www.google.com/accounts/ServiceLogin", "", false); //I first go to point 1 I explained above
            if (res.Contains("gaia captchahtml desc"))
            {
                error = "Captcha is required";
            }
            else
            {
				//I extract 2 variables that I will need to pass in the post parameters
                string galx = System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Match(res, @"(?:name\=""GALX"")(?:.*?)(?:value\="")(.*?)(?:"")",  System.Text.RegularExpressions.RegexOptions.Singleline).Groups[1].Value; 
                string dsh = System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Match(res, @"(?:id\=""dsh"")(?:.*?)(?:value\="")(.*?)(?:"")", System.Text.RegularExpressions.RegexOptions.Singleline).Groups[1].Value;
                username = username.Replace("@", "%40");
                string param = "dsh="+dsh+"&timeStmp=&secTok=&GALX="+galx+"&Email="+username+"&Passwd="+password+"&PersistentCookie=yes&rmShown=1&signIn=Conecta%C5%A3i-v%C4%83&asts=";
                res = down.download("https://www.google.com/accounts/ServiceLoginAuth", param, true);

                //here I go to adwords ... but it does not work
				string redi = System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Match(res, @"(?:\&\#39\;)(.*?)(?:\&\#39\;)", System.Text.RegularExpressions.RegexOptions.Singleline).Groups[1].Value.Replace("&", "&");
				res = down.download(redi, "", false);
				res=down.download("https://adwords.google.com/um/StartNewLogin?sourceid=awo&subid=ww-en-et-gaia", "", false);
            }
            return error;
        }


This is my HttpWebrequest class (That handles post/get). It works good because I use it all the time. I did try to modify everything (headers, cookies ...) but no luck
