apt-get is using my college proxy but it is disabled

Postby keyboarder » Wed Dec 19, 2007 2:47 pm

Hi,

At college, I have to configure firefox with a proxy to access the internet, but I got home now and I disabled it.
I disabled it in firefox preferences and in "Preferences >> Network Proxy" on the startup menu.

When I try to run apt-get update it stop in the middle of the process trying to connect to that same proxy.

How can I fix this?

Is it set to direct connect to the internet now?
