What are you actually trying to do? Is using lynx an example?

After downloading proto-7.6-1.wget and proto-7.6-1.md5, did you execute the following (From the Downloading Xorg Protocol Headers section):

mkdir proto &&
cd proto &&
grep -v '^#' ../proto-7.6-1.wget | wget -i- -c -B &&
md5sum -c ../proto-7.6-1.md5

lynx was a test.i'm exactly doing this section:

grep -v '^#' ../proto-7.6-1.wget | wget -i- -c -B
wget could resolve the address but it couldn't connect to it.i'm getting timeout error

It works on my side:

$ grep -v '^#' proto-7.6-1.wget | wget -i- -c    -B
