    Thanks for the quick reply, however I thought 'apt-get update's inability to contact the archive servers was also the reason I am also having trouble using 'apt-get install' to install anything. I have also been trying to use 'apt-get install' to install nmap and I am still getting each time I try a "E: Unable to locate package nmap" error. Do you know why this error is occurring.

    Thanks.

    Its both. However it seems to be able to navigate the proxy as I was able to download packages straight from the archives using 'wget'. I also added the following lines to the .bashrc file to make sure it could authenticate. However this has had no effect.

    Code:
    http_proxy=http://myUserName:password@proxy.uowa.edu.au:8080
    export http_proxy
    Thanks.

    True, I don't have much vm experience though. I'll try and have this moved to the vm section.

    Without ANY information about what VM platform this is on and if the VM networking is Bridged or whatever then the OP is not going to get much help at all.
