That link actually sends you a redirect.  Then, the redirect URL 
<https://ezproxylogin1.ntu.edu.sg/restricted/login.asp?logup=false&url=http://www.springerlink.com/content/23j63676550n0q45/fulltext.pdf> 
uses HTTP authentication.

Add your username and password to the redirect URL like:
<https://username:password@ezproxylogin1.ntu.edu.sg/restricted/login.asp?logup=false&url=http://www.springerlink.com/content/23j63676550n0q45/fulltext.pdf>
and give that URL to KGet,  hopefully that will get you the file.  AFAIK, 
KGet does not normally prompt for or store credentials, so you have to use 
the URL syntax.

Unfortunately, I won't be much help with troubleshooting past that point ad I 
don't have credentials for the NTU library.
