    hi every body
    i am new to ubuntu 12.04 and i'm using "axel" download manager to download files at home .

    at this file , i added "http_proxy = http://usename : pass @ proxy : port/"

    Sam Watkins wrote implemented a simple caching web proxy server using axel. It runs from inetd (He uses the package
    openbsd-inetd). The script is a bit messy but it's unusual anyway to see a web proxy written in 2.5Kb of shell script.

    Sam's ISP is a bit dodgy and individual TCP connections are slow while many parallel connections run fast.

    It works well enough for most basic http and ftp queries, although for lots of small files it will be slower than a normal unproxied connection.
