    -You can't download from server capcha code (php script)
    PHP is by definition a server-side script. So it is IMPOSIBLE.
    You can break capcha code only using DTP method.

    Obviously you can't grab php code because it's server side. If you want to grab a regular image because you want to figure out the layout of a website right click on it and select "Properties" and it will show you the path of the picture, which you can copy and paste to visit it. You can use webdeveloper toolbar or firebug for firefox to make your life easier with that.

    You wont be able to grab capcha code as its generated run time but if you make any softwre application in vb.net or c# with image processing to read ocr then its possible for you to do that.
