I tried this
[root@localhost crosstool-0.43]# wget http://kegel.com/crosstool/crosstool-0.43.tar.gz
Error parsing proxy URL http://username:firstname.lastname@example.org:8080": Bad port number.
I am behind a proxy and by just googling i came to know the username and password should be provided along with the port number.I took the same data from my firefox and tried but i got that error msg,..is my syntax correct? or any other mistakes?
