View Full Version : [ubuntu] proxy does not work in ubuntu but does work in windows

January 11th, 2013, 03:16 PM

I work on ubuntu 12.04 with a internet connection using proxy. Lately the proxy address changed, and now suddenly I cannot connect to internet whatsoever. Strangely, the same proxy adress does work on a windows machine. I know there is a bug concerning the system wide application of proxy settings, but that is not my problem. If i set the new proxy address in firefox it just does not connect. But in the network manager I can see that there is a connection. Any clues?
