wget does not work for me
Authored by: James Bond on May 13, '01 11:31:05AM

What do I need to do to get it to work?

I am behind proxy.pandora.be port 8080 operated by my ISP/Cable supplier.

I have set http_proxy and use_proxy as per the GNU documentation but I get the following:

[localhost:~] roger% set | grep proxy
http_proxy http://proxy.pandora.be:8080/
use_proxy on
[localhost:~] roger% wget www.cnn.com
--16:37:48-- http://www.cnn.com:80/
=> `index.html.3'
Connecting to www.cnn.com:80...
connect: Operation timed out
Retrying.

--16:39:03-- http://www.cnn.com:80/
(try: 2) => `index.html.3'
Connecting to www.cnn.com:80... ^C
