[root@uk]# echo $http_proxy

[root@uk]# echo $https_proxy
http://setproxy.aaa.com/proxy.pac:8080


wget are used as below

[root@uk]# wget https://www.google.com/
--2016-12-05 03:52:09-- https://www.google.com/
Resolving setproxy.aaa.com... 10.184.18.74
Connecting to setproxy.aaa.com|10.184.18.74|:80... connected.
Proxy tunneling failed: Method Not AllowedUnable to establish SSL connection.
[root@uk]#

Hi,

From my point of view it looks that your proxy dont allow that, but im guessing.

Try to use also curl that may help.

Regards,
Luis

Can you try:
Code:
wget --method=HEAD https://www.google.com/
If it went through, HEAD is allowed but not GET method as per log output. Regardless, check your proxy server.

I think the target will not al;low the ssl connection. You might try --user-agent= and just leave it blank.

@camp0 - i tried using curl, still showing failed
[root@us /]# curl https://www.google.com/
curl: (7) Failed to connect to 2607:f8b0:400a:800::2004: Network is unreachable
[root@us]#


@c0wb0y - I do not see any --method options, different version maybe?
[root@us]# wget --method=HEAD https://www.google.com/
wget: unrecognized option '--method=HEAD'
Usage: wget [OPTION]... [URL]...

Try `wget --help' for more options.
[root@us]#

[root@us]# wget --user-agent= https://www.google.com/

Read the error carefully. You are using ssl. It says method not allowed.

try substituting https with http if you want to download and see if it works.


Hope this helps.

Oops, my bad. I misread the manpage.

How about this:
Code:
curl -4 https://www.google.com/
openssl s_client -connect google.com:443
We're you able to get past the proxy?

It's time for you now to check your proxy server.
