wget behind proxy

One of the ways to get wget to work behind proxy is to create .wgetrc file in the user’s home directory. In it put this:

http_proxy = http://proxy_server_yourdomain.com:8080/

if your proxy is using authentication, add also the following lines to your .wgetrc file

proxy_user=user
proxy_password=password
