You can use “wget” on Linux machine CLI to download files from http or ftp sites. Proxy configuration can be done for wget by exporting environment variables

Initialize proxy :

# export http_proxy=unixfoo-proxy.unixfoo.net:80
# export ftp_proxy=unixfoo-proxy.unixfoo.net:80

Start download :

# wget ftp://mirror.wbut.ac.in/pub/fedora/linux/releases/9/Fedora/i386/iso/Fedora-9-i386-disc1.iso ftp://mirror.wbut.ac.in/pub/fedora/linux/releases/9/Fedora/i386/iso/Fedora-9-i386-disc2.iso ftp://mirror.wbut.ac.in/pub/fedora/linux/releases/9/Fedora/i386/iso/Fedora-9-i386-disc3.iso ftp://mirror.wbut.ac.in/pub/fedora/linux/releases/9/Fedora/i386/iso/Fedora-9-i386-disc4.iso ftp://mirror.wbut.ac.in/pub/fedora/linux/releases/9/Fedora/i386/iso/Fedora-9-i386-disc5.iso ftp://mirror.wbut.ac.in/pub/fedora/linux/releases/9/Fedora/i386/iso/Fedora-9-i386-disc6.iso
