Looking for ftp/http/https download client

The ideal client should support hppt/https proxy and automatic regetting.

[Wget doesn't support https proxy and curl cannot reget automaticaly.]

Re: Looking for ftp/http/https download client

Try using wget with the http proxy. The
proxy may do the https fetch for you and
reply over http.

The apache proxy module will do both http and
ftp proxying over http. I haven't tried,
but I would expect that it will do the same
if the ssl module is loaded.

Bill,

it doesn't work.

More details:
- my company uses non-linux proxy [MS, I think]; there is no direct http/https internet access
- I have to use https for downloading RHLE ISOs from rhn.redhat.com

Vitaly,

maybe lftp would do. Here is a link on freshmeat giving a better description thant official site. It might have all features you want.

10x to all:

- I'll evaluate lftp
- this morning I've discavered that RH uses for *now* http and not https for providing ISO images bia RHN, so I'll be able to use wget too

Re: Looking for ftp/http/https download client

Hai,

We can use SQUID to do your requirement. Squid will be capable to do caching over the http/https requests.

We can use wget on the squid for the ftp requests. SQUID is more compact and effective one on http and https requests.

We can achieve anonymouse login for ftp and user authentication with SQUID. We can cache "ALL THE GOOD THINGS"

Muthukumar.
Easy to suggest when don't know about the problem!
