I searched this forum for this topic, but I didn't find an equivalent threat for that. If this exists, a link would be enought.
My probleme is, my computer is placed behind a proxy. I set up already the proxy settings in the network section.
Internet does work generally with firefox. OK, I have to enter name and passwort for each single page and each single embedded element, but it is working.
For updating with apt-get the following command does work:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get -o Acquire::http::Proxy="http://user:passwort@proxy:port" update
To enter this option in the config file /etc/apt/apt.conf (with finishing semicolon) does not work.
Neither for the commandline call "sudo apt-get update", nor for the gui based update manager.
So, I have a bunch of question and I hope some of them can be answered:
1. How can I solve that update problem?
2. Why is it possible to set up the proxy, but without username and passwort?
3. Why is this setting not system wide (I think, this would be the easiest solution.)?
4. How can I tell firefox that my username and password don't change within 340ms?
Thank you very much
