User Tools

Site Tools


Add the following lines to your environment:

export http_proxy=""
export ftp_proxy=""

Now, start wget with some enhanced options:

wget --proxy-user "Domain\JohnUser" --proxy-passwd "SooooSecret"

You can create an alias to save that configuration, although it may be a security risk to save a passwd inside it:

 alias wget 'wget --proxy-user "Domain\JohnUser" --proxy-passwd="SooooSecret"'

Altenatively, you may use the username/password in the http_proxy/ftp_proxy variables:

 export http_proxy="http://Domain\\JohnUser:SooooSecret@"
 export ftp_proxy="http://Domain\\JohnUser:SooooSecret@"
