wget version 1.5.3

I am running wget on Linux and NT. I am using the syntax:

It works fine under Linux, but when I use the wget for Cygnus/NT that I downloaded at
I get an error message:
wget: Cannot determine user-id

I have tried setting various options like --http-user, --proxy-user, --http-passwd, --proxy-passwd, and none of them seem to work.

Does anybody know how to get this command to work under Cygnus?

Thanks in Advance,

Clark Sims
