I'm using telnet to remote into a local FreeBSD server and I need to transfer a file to the server so I can unpack and install it, however I'm unsure on how to get the file onto the server.

Is there a program installed by default with FreeBSD that has the equivalent abilities of WGET?

For an outdated system that can not update with pkg commands to obtain a port of wget, luckily fetch is built in to the FreeBSD system. Here is an example using fetch to download a file:

fetch https://www.domain.tld/file.ext

Yeah, it's called wget.

Look for the ports collection install located at: /usr/ports/www/wget
