Hi

I am using the Ubuntu 9.10 via vmware, on the windows XP desktop in office. I have issues in having my synaptic manager and update manager working. I have proxy configured for the browser and internet seems working fine.
I have added the proxy in the /etc/bash.bashrc, which got the sudo-apt install working, however i need help to get the synaptic manager and update manager working. Any help is appreciated.
Things i did: I have searched in this forum and internet and removed the reference in apt.conf file
Any ideas are welcome.

Cheers

Oops this is solved, by having the right IP address in synaptic, preference and settings.
Thank you all.

Note that in X you can set proxy(s) under System > Preferences > Network Proxy, and whether to "Apply System-Wide...".

I had to do that when running Ubuntu at work, because they have our SonicWall blocking direct internet access of port 80 and 443, which have to go through the VPN to our factory (squid?) proxy.
