Unable to access http site using wget through proxy

Hi there
I am currently trying to access an http site using the wget utility from a solaris box. I am going through proxies to do this and we have two types of proxies.

For the first one, which is a netcache proxy, I am able to use the wget command to export the proxy information

export http_proxy="http://usernameSmilieassword@proxySmilieort"

and then I am able to access the site using the following-

/usr/sfw/bin/wget Google

The above works fine.

However when I try to use a different type of proxy called ironport proxy, performing the above steps does not work.

I get an error message saying no route was found to the host.

It looks like the ironport proxy does not understand wget or wget needs to send something specific for the ironport proxy to let it through to access the site.

Does anyone know anything about how these are different and what we can do to make the ironport proxy work with wget.

Isn't ironport a Cisco product now? I'd suggest calling support, they're gonna know better than us chickens. Smilie

Good luck.

Thanks Kodak, turns out that ironport proxies require ntlm-based authentication and curl is the tool to use for that since wget does not support it.
