Im an absolute noob when it comes to linux (first time Im using it)
my proxy address is 10.27.21.4 on port 8080 and I also use authentication [domainname\username | Password]
How would I go about setting the config for the above...bear in mind, I dont even know what APT is.
open a terminal and enter sudo su
command and then press enter. you will be asked to enter a password. you must write the password of the uset that you created. then, write in that terminal gedit /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/proxy
and press enter. in that empty file write Acquire::http::Proxy "http://USER:PASSWD@primary-proxy.domain.com
:PORT/"; (replace user, passwd and ip address and port of the proxy). in that terminal, again, write gedit /etc/environment
, press enter and write http_proxy="http://USER:PASSWD@primary-proxy.domain.com
:PORT" (replace user, passwd, ip and port of the proxy). then save the file.
