If I try to download the some http files, Then wget works just fine(eg:
wget download_link). But when i try to download https files using wget then I'm getting the following error
http request sent 403 forbidden
My problem is, I can't download http files in my college wifi. So when I try to download the file, wget will send the http request to the server. Eventually,download will be blocked.
To download the https file, I've used the following command
How to download https files(username and password is there in the download link too)
Are there any extra options needed with wget?
Initially wget does not support the https downloads in some destribution. We need to compile the source code manually using openssl. After that we can do https downloads
