command line wget or curl


We´re having problems accesing  to a particular website: .We´re receiving a cannot connect error. We know this is a valid site as we can access from another networks.

If we make "ping", the echo doesn´t replies but it resolves the domain. If we access from a different network the ping replies echo. So we would like to discard that the problem is coming from the MFE.

Does anybody know if it´s possible to do via SSH a get to url - like as in MWG with wget or curl?

$> telnet [IP] 80

- From the CLI of the firewall.  You'll see a SYN, SYN/ACK, ACK at least if it connects.

The firewall also has Python on it so you can use Python scripts/commands to get URLs also.

I can access that site through both a and a 8.2.1 firewall through the HTTP proxy.

You have to look in the audit to see if your firewall is blocking some sort of header or response from the server.
