Hello,

At my current location I need to authenticate via a proxy before I can access an internet resource.

Whilst this is technically an environmental issue it does prevent the "download.bat file from working.

I would therefore like to suggest that the batch file is enhanced to include a "commented out" example line showing how to do this.

This would save bone idle people like me the effort of having to Google it all up again (I've done this before but it was a long time ago and, not only do I not remember how to do this, I also failed to write it down ;)

    If it is a problem with the HTTPS servers, then q quick workaround I have found is that by pressing ctrl-c and answer 'no' to terminating the batch script sends the ctrl-c to the downloading program causing it to quit. This program will then drop down to the HTTP servers.

     
  • Try setting the http_proxy= and https_proxy = in the wget.ini file in the bin directory. This will get things running via a proxy better.
