View Full Version : [ubuntu] Proxy in chromium

October 13th, 2009, 06:57 AM
Well, I insatalled chromium on my laptop without any fuss, but when I started browsing on it I found out that the local intranet sites are blocked by it.It probably used the proxy server for intranet also . But then I bypassed the proxy server for the intranet sites hoping it would work.But still I am not able to view the intranet sites on chrome while I am able to do it on firefox. So what's the problem?? Can somebody HELP????

You have to exclude Intranet sites from the proxy ... In Firefox this setting is called "No proxy for .... " <== and there you add your internal IP range, for example.

In Chromium that would be the "Ignored Hosts" setting:

- Open Chromium
- click on the wrench on the far right (Chromium menu bar)
- click on "Options"
- go to "Under the hood"
- click on "Change proxy settings"
- a new window should have opened
- go to the "Ignored Hosts" tab
- here you have to add hosts and IP ranges from your Intranet

==> tadaaa ... they won't go through the proxy anymore.

It's a late response, but if you search google for chromium proxy, this thread shows up really high.

To solve this problem you can run chromium with the command

chromium-browser --proxy-server=proxyip:port

If you want to start chromium with proxy from the menu, you can go to
system --> preferences --> main menu
on the left chose internet, now click the chromium web browser right, and double click it to edit.

Change the command to
chromium-browser %U --proxy-server=proxyip:port
