    if you mean that you need to log in to a rich web page using a text based console, you can try lynx

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install lynx

    Essentially you need to modify an environment variable
    You put it in /etc/environment for a system wide settings ~/.pam_environment for a per user setting.

    add a line like this, modifying for real values

    Code:
    export http_proxy="http://username:password@proxyaddress:port"
    "You can't expect to hold supreme executive power just because some watery tart lobbed a sword at you"

    squid or varnish

    The two main web proxies are squid and varnish. Which one are you using?
