HowTo Wget behind Authenticated Proxy, Sohail Riaz, red5 hosting.#Red5 #hosting

Posted on by 0 comment

This howto describe how to run wget behind authenticated proxy to download files. GNU Wget is a package for retrieving files using HTTP, HTTPS and FTP, the most widely-used Internet protocols. It is a non-interactive commandline tool, so it may easily be called from scripts, cron jobs, terminals without X-Windows support, etc.

GNU Wget comes as default software with almost every distribution, so we are going to just configure it to start downloading using authenticated proxy.

1) Export http_proxy variable

2) Export http_proxy variable in bash login script

3) Define Proxy User / Pass in .wgetrc

4) Test

proxy_pass is now proxy_password on RHEL6

Thanx for the info about setting http_proxy. Even man pages of wget does

not list this option. I landed upon your blog and learned it. But your blog

has an error, i.e., proxy_pass. It should be proxy_password. I tried it

on FC14 and failed and was successful only when I changed to

proxy_password which is listed in the wget man pages.

Nevertheless thanks again for your efforts in imparting knowledge

to your friends world over.

Dear Sohail Riaz,
