I would like to install MATLAB on a server to run my code remotely, but I am having problems downloading MATLAB.
I know I can download MATLAB from MathWorks when I am logged in, and I can automate this on the command line with wget if I use a cookies.txt file from logging in at my local browser (in principle I should be able to log in with wget, but I haven't got this working yet). However, I can't use the download page with wget because it needs JavaScript.
Is there some other way I can download and install MATLAB onto a remote server using just the command prompt?
Thanks, Scott

If you want to download MATLAB R2015b windows 64-bit, use the following command:
wget http://esd.mathworks.com/R2015b/win64/INST_661328/matlab_R2015b_win64.exe
and for Linux 64-bit:
wget http://esd.mathworks.com/R2015b/Linux_x86_64/INST_091492/matlab_R2015b_glnxa64.zip

Thanks, Dave.
I tried this on my PC and it worked... but only once and then the links both expired. Is there a persistent link to download MATLAB, or a way to generate new temporary links on demand?

Hey, if there are glitches in using command line links as they are temporary, I'd suggest you to login and use the Mathworks Official website interface which eases and efficiates the download and installation process. It is really efficient and easy to access. you can use the link https://www.mathworks.com/downloads/ for the latest Matlab versions.
