HI
Whenever i'm trying to get a file with wget in the terminal i'm seeing the following message.

bash-2.05b$wget www.google.com --17:19:06-- https://www.google.com/ => `index.html' Resolving www.google.com... failed: Host not found. bash-2.05b$

it might be helpful to note that i'm using proxy server and i'm not root. please tell me how to fix this.

thanks

Hie,

Before use wget you should first access to the ftp server
where the files that you pretend download the you can use the wget command
to fetch the files.

1) ftp (adress)
2) wget (file name)

Hope this helps
