Wget reads proxy information from the http_proxy and ftp_proxy environment variables. As in:
Code:
http_proxy="http://proxyserver:PORT" wget http://www.google.com

You do not need to modify a file. Just type http_proxy="http://proxyserver:PORT"

If you want that to stay, then you may modify ~/.bashrc, if you are using bash as your shell.

Code:
       --proxy-user=USER     set USER as proxy username.
       --proxy-passwd=PASS   set PASS as proxy password.
To me, it seems like bad software design to make the proxy name be an env. variable and proxy authentication command-line options, but oh well, that's the way it is.
