How to fetch File from a URL to Unix Server?

Hello All,

I wanted to get the software to be fetched from the Service Provide URL to my unix server. I tired using the mget, but resulted in error. Please take a look.

$ wget -O V3-0-5-2.Solaris8-SPARC.tar.gz --http-user=hd87es3 --http-passwd=987dnja7
           => `V3-0-5-2.Solaris8-SPARC.tar.gz'
Connecting to[]:80... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 302 Found
Location: [following] Unsupported scheme.

Any suggestion or idea to get this done !!

The compile option for https support wasn't enabled when your version of wget was built. Get a new version of wget with https support.

Dear, I hope that's not the real password? Please edit your post to obscure any sensitive information.

The above password and Login is provided by the Service Provider in the same format. They have been edited for security purpose.

Currently i see the wget version 1.9. Please take a look.

$ pkginfo -l | grep -i wget
   PKGINST:  SMCwget
      NAME:  wget
   PKGINST:  SUNWwgetr
      NAME:  GNU wget - utility to retrieve files from the World Wide Web (root)
      DESC:  GNU wget - a utility to retrieve files from the World Wide Web (root components) 1.9.1
   PKGINST:  SUNWwgetu
      NAME:  wget - GNU wget
      DESC:  GNU wget - a utility to retrieve files from the World Wide Web (Usr) 1.9.1

Any idea how to use curl instead of wget to download the *.tar.gz file from the URL provided.
