wget encounter error "Error parsing proxy URL xxx Unsupported scheme 'socks5'"
In my .bashrc, i configure the proxy like this
export http=http://127.0.0.1:8000 export https=http://127.0.0.1:8000 export http_proxy=socks5://127.0.0.1:1080 export https_proxy=socks5://127.0.0.1:1080 export ALL_PROXY=socks5://127.0.0.1:1080
and when i use
wget to download some file, i encounter this error:
Error parsing proxy URL socks5://127.0.0.1:1080: Unsupported scheme ‘socks5’.
Actually i don’t know the reason behind this, but i find one solution that can solve this problem
we can use a tscocks to make wget use proxy
sudo pacman -S tsocks
sudo apt install tsocks
modifty configure file of tsocks
/etc/tsocks.confdoesn’t exist, so we need copy file from
sudo cp /usr/share/tsocks/tsocks.conf.simple.example /etc/tsocks.conf
modify the content of
# This is the configuration for libtsocks (transparent socks) # Lines beginning with # and blank lines are ignored # # This sample configuration shows the simplest (and most common) use of # tsocks. This is a basic LAN, this machine can access anything on the # local ethernet (192.168.0.*) but anything else has to use the SOCKS version # 4 server on the firewall. Further details can be found in the man pages, # tsocks(8) and tsocks.conf(5) and a more complex example is presented in # tsocks.conf.complex.example # We can access 192.168.0.* directly # local = 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0 # Otherwise we use the server server = 127.0.0.1 # Server type defaults to 4 so we need to specify it as 5 for this one server_type = 5 # The port defaults to 1080 but I've stated it here for clarity server_port = 1080
unset your proxy environment variable
tsocks wget ...
