Reg; wget not working linux


Hi Guys,
In my fedora installed machine wget command is not working. While trying to get a file from an URL http://downloads.asterisk.org/pub/te...-1.4.22.tar.gz using wget command i am getting the following error HTTP request sent, awaiting response... Read error (Connection reset by peer) in headers. . I tried uninstalling and re-installing the wget package. But still the problem exist.

Could someone please help me regarding this.

Thanks
Vijay

Are you sure this is a wget problem?

Have you tried to download it using your browser and does that work? (Index of /pub/telephony/sounds/releases)

The site mentioned is up and running (I tried using both wget and browser).

Thanks for the reply druuna,

Are you talking about automated installation/scripts using wget that fail?

Have you tried the wget command from the command line and did that work?
Code:
# from the command line:
wget http://downloads.asterisk.org/pub/telephony/sounds/releases/asterisk-core-sounds-en-gsm-1.4.22.tar.gz

# and to make sure it isn't the asterisk site that's given problems:
wget http://www.tldp.org/LDP/Bash-Beginners-Guide/Bash-Beginners-Guide.txt.gz
If this is not automated then it really doesn't matter how you get the files, using a browser would do. This way you can go on with the installation and worry about the possible problems with the wget command later on.

Yes exactly, druuna. i am using automated script for installing asterisk pbx.
Have you tried the wget command from the command line and did that work?
Yes, i tried it gives the same error as i mentioned in my first post "--2013-05-03 08:29:07-- (try: 3) http://downloads.asterisk.org/pub/te...-1.4.22.tar.gz

You haven't answered this one yet:
Code:
# and to make sure it isn't the asterisk site that's given problems:
wget http://www.tldp.org/LDP/Bash-Beginners-Guide/Bash-Beginners-Guide.txt.gz
Or put differently: Does wget work with anything else then the asterisk site?

You do mention that you are able to download the asterisk file using your browser. Maybe you need to add proxy settings when using wget?
Code:
wget --proxy-user=username --proxy-password=password http://downloads.asterisk.org/pub/telephony/sounds/releases/asterisk-core-sounds-en-gsm-1.4.22.tar.gz
BTW: If I look at Fedora 17/18/19 I do see that asterisk is part of the repo, maybe you can use that instead.

Reg; wget not working linux

sorry druuna for not replying to that. Here is the response for the attached sample code.
I executed the below command and got the response as follows.
wget http://www.tldp.org/LDP/Bash-Beginne...s-Guide.txt.gz
Response:
--2013-05-03 12:58:05-- (try: 2) http://www.tldp.org/LDP/Bash-Beginne...s-Guide.txt.gz
Connecting to www.tldp.org|152.19.134.41|:80... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... Read error (Connection reset by peer) in headers.
Retrying.

i tried pinging google.com it worked. But while trying sites like microsoft,asterisk etc.. they are throwing the above mentioned error.

Regarding the second piece of code. I tried but have a doubt on what to use the username and password is it system username/password?
i tried system username/password still the problem exists.

One more correction regarding Os, i am using "CentOS release 6.4 (Final)" i tried installing a newer version will solve my problem but still the problem exist.

Thanks
Vijay
