axel behind a proxy and I usually set all these environment variables
export http_proxy='http://<ip>:<port>' export all_proxy=$http_proxy export https_proxy=$http_proxy export ftp_proxy=$http_proxy export HTTP_PROXY=$http_proxy export HTTPS_PROXY=$http_proxy export FTP_PROXY=$http_proxy
I just checked and it seems at least the lowercase version is supported:
user@hostname:/tmp$ axel http://www.google.com Initializing download: http://www.google.com Unable to connect to server www.google.com:80 user@hostname:/tmp$ export http_proxy='http://127.0.0.1:5865' user@hostname:/tmp$ axel http://www.google.com Initializing download: http://www.google.com Opening output file default.1 Server unsupported, starting from scratch with one connection. Starting download [ 0%] .......... . Connection 0 finished Downloaded 11.3 Kilobyte in 0 seconds. (37.63 KB/s)
I think there should be no problem using basic http authentication in this form, but I cannot check it
