I'll try it.  My expectation is that it will work just fine *once it starts*.
That is my experience with downloading using a browser.
In the case of wget, the issue will be typinng the command.
Suggestion for a file?  A Centos iso perhaps?
I'd look for it with a browser,  but it might take a while.

What is an elink?

To handle my centos mail,
I ssh to the server with my mail and run alpine
as the ordinary user that I am.
ssh is running from virtual teminal 2
while virtual terminal 1 is crawling.
