I have installed wget inside the Subsystem for UNIX-based Applications.

I want to download something through wget inside SUA.

My Windows Firewall is configured to block anything except allowed rules.

What program should I allow for wget to be able to connect and download anything?

I already tried allowing c:\Windows\posix.exe and c:\Windows\SUA\usr\local\bin\wget with no luck.

A temporary workaround I use is to configure wget to use an http proxy installed locally.

EDIT:

I have found a solution to allow ALL applications in SUA. This is C:\Windows\System32\psxss.exe which should be allowed to make outbound connections.
