How to install new tools (curl) inside cygwin

Back>

We can use many unix network commands under windows within cygwin such as netstat, nslookup, ping, route, arp, hostname,  (tracert, ipconfig) with the default cygwin install.

Other commands such as curl, wget, openssl etc. are optional cygwin tools which need you to install separately.



In order to install a new tool,

  1. download the cygwin setup.exe if you don't already have it.
  2. run the setup.exe (can run it anytime you need to install/update/uninstall tools)
  3. follow the wizard until the select packages screen.
  4. select category in View drop down, under Net category, find your tool (curl) and click it to select.
  5. click Next, follow the wizard until end.
