Subject: [gentoo-user] wget with http proxy
Date: Wed, 12 Feb 2014 08:59:52
1 I'm setting up a dedicated firewall / http proxy-cache (Squid) for my
2 home network, with user authentication in 'digest' mode. Works fine with
3 browsers but sometimes emerge fails. Turns out that some downloads are
4 done with wget and wget supports only 'basic' authentication with proxy
5 servers. So now I see the following options:
7 1. use 'basic' authentication on the proxy, or
8 2. bypass the authentication for non-browser requests (e.g. using a
9 'browser' ACL element?), or
10 3. convince emerge to use a different http downloader that supports
11 'digest' authentication.
13 I'll probably go with 1 or 2 but nevertheless is there any possibility
14 to pursue 3?
16 thanks,
18 raffaele
