Yes, but "curl" does not honor the proxy setting...
Authored by: gvaughn on Apr 07, '05 10:22:49AM

That is correct, but curl does have a .curlrc (I think that's the name) where the proxy server can be specified. One of the things on my to-do list is to figure out a way to automatically synchronize that with the system proxy setting. Has anyone tackled that yet?

I looked at this (getting the system's proxy settings based on the current location) but decided against it - it would have been too painful to do so (at least much more painful than using three lines with URL Access Scripting instead...)

Take a look at this thread in the Apple Discussions

Thanks for that reference. It is harder than I thought. Unfortunately, I do have to deal with authenticating proxies. I've done that successfully with wget on a Linux box, but I'm not sure about curl. I had a bad experience with URL Access Scripting on OS 9.
