How to know if this 'puter is "behind a proxy"?
How do I determine is this computer is "behind a proxy"? How would I remove the proxy? This is my home computer. I connects to the internet via wifi. Short of making the computer vulnerable to the outside world, I don't want a proxy and AFAIK, I have no knowingly installed a proxy on this computer or it's wifi access.
What this is about is setting up a Raspberry PI with RaspBMC. I format the sd card, run sudo python install.py and answer the questions. The sd card gets a partition with 76 meg in use. I set up the system as "USB" and have tried both wired and wireless to get to the Raspbmc update server, but it fails. The sd card is less than a month old. It has been re-formatted a dozen times due to the update server not connecting.
