Problem with wget


I want to download some patches from SUN by using a script and I am using "wget" as the utillity for this.

The website for downloading has a "https:" in its name as below${line}&method=h

and on running wget as below

wget --http-user=${UserID} --http-passwd=${UserPWD} --proxy-user=${PROXYUSER} --proxy-passwd=${PROXYPASSWD} -nv "https://s${line}&method=h" -O ${DOWNLOADIR}/${line}.zip >> ${LOGFILE} 2>&1

I am getting error as Unsupported scheme.

Please help me find why the error is coming as Unsupported scheme.

You need to get a wget with https support. Some distributors don't build that in by default because the SSL libraries used to have an icky license.
