Getting wget to work in a "corporate" environment

Alright, here's what I do to get wget from the Native Win32 ports GNU collection to work with as little fuss as possible. set WGETRC=%HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%\.wgetrc cat > %HOMEDIR%%HOMEPATH%\.wgetrc http_proxy = http://PROXY:PORT/ ftp_proxy = http://PROXY:PORT/ use_proxy = on proxy_user = USERNAME proxy_passwd = PASSWORD user_agent = SOMETHING GOES HERE ^Z^Z Pay attention to proxy_passwd . wget is at version 1.8.2 and that configuration option was renamed in a later version.
