    A cookie, if I had to guess.
    Use a program like Wireshark or Fiddler to watch the traffic from you to Rapidshare, and mimic it.

    Also, it's a "request" - packet is a poor word to describe a GET. TCP is "stream-oriented" (google for just about any sockets tutorial and you'll get this). Your GET request might be broken into 1, 2, or whoknows how many packets when actually sent - something your program should not care about.
