    URGENT HELP NEEDED (proxy error)

    Hi all,

    I need some serious help PLEASE!!!!!!
    Im running Ubuntu 11.04 and somehow have messed up the global variables for proxy/network settings…

    At home have internet no proxy.
    At varsity have internet but is proxy based (linux system have username and password) user = rich password = ieza, server is http://www.xx.xxx.xx/xxxx.xxx (port 8080 i hope)


    FIRSTLY I needed to disable proxy so I can work at home on the internet….
    Have tried changing web browsers settings +

    tried system->prefernces->network proxy->direct internet connection apply system wide & not system wide +

    a few other things including changing the /etc/apt/apt.conf WHICH doesn’t exist on my Ubuntu 11.04) and also no mention of proxy in the bash.bashrc file SO don’t know wat to do here!!!


    Secondly if I can restore my proxy to “direct internet connection” I would like to also be able to update packages at varsity (after changing the settings from no proxy at home to proxy for varsity)

    Have tried changing proxy settings system->prefernces->network proxy-> to
    Rich:ieza@http://www.xxxxx:8080
    http://Rich:ieza@www.xxxxx:8080

    tried
    apt.conf file as : Acquire::http: proxy (created this file did not previously exist!!)


    ETC

    Basically windows 7,xp works 100% can update software etc linux not being very friendly ATM..


    THANKS A LOT!

    I have this exact same problem at home and work. The big problem I have is authenticating against a windows proxy at work. I can see the internet via firefox at work if I change the proxy settings, I need to use NTLMAPS to authenticate through the proxy to use aptitude et al.

    Could this be your problem?
