There are several ways to convince wget to use a http proxy:
1. You can set the environment variables http_proxy, https_proxy and
ftp_proxy before you start wget. That would be done in ~/.bashrc if you
want it set at login time. Don't ask me where to set it if you use
another shell than bash though.
2. You can use the file /etc/wgetrc to set the proxy system wide. Search
for "proxy" in that file - there is an example as a comment.
3. You can use a file $HOME/.wgetrc with the same syntax as /etc/wgetrc
if you want to use your own configuration independent from thy system
And no, it is not a bug, IMHO. I suppose your terminal program doesn't
read the ~/.bashrc or similar config file where the environment variable
is set, while your ssh login reads that file. Check it with
in your terminal program and after ssh login.
