For using PROXY servers You have to define the environment variables http_proxy and possibly ftp_proxy.
If You want to use PROXY authentication You can use the environment variable WGET_OPTS:
WGET_OPTS="--proxy=on --proxy-user=foo --proxy-passwd=bar" http_proxy="http://http-proxy.anywhere.org:80" ftp_proxy="http://ftp-proxy.anywhere.org:80" ./get-nonfree-nonUS
What's New in This Release:
· The actual package download procedure was changed a little to be able to reuse an already established connection to the server.
· This should increase speed and reduce the load on the servers.
