Wget Configuration for the Proxy
This article describes the GNU Wget free software package for retrieving files from the Internet. The Wget command line tool can be used with the HTTP and HTTPS protocols. It supports HTTP proxies and can be called from scripts or scheduled jobs. Wget runs on most UNIX-like operating systems as well as on Windows.
Wget can support your use cases, making it easy to retrieve large files or mirror entire websites. You'll find more details at http://www.gnu.org/software/wget/.
Information and Downloads
GNU Wget documentation in several online and print formats is available here.
Wget supports proxies for http retrievals. Wget will use the
http_proxy environment variable if it is set. If set, the
http_proxy variable should contain the URL of the proxy for http connection.
The example below shows how to use wget if
http_proxy is not set.
http_proxy="http://PROXYHOST:PORT" wget --proxy-user=USERNAME --proxy-password=PASSWORD http://example.com
