    Proxy problems


    I am stuck behind a proxy. I know how to set and export the proxy, but I have to do that everytime I am in command line. I know there is a .conf file somewhere that I can edit but I can't find it. Please help!

    for configuration files search in /etc.take a look at /etc/xinetd.d or /etc/xinetd.conf. to check all the .conf files on your pc use :
    Code:
    find / -name *.conf

    Create one shell script in "/etc/profile.d"

    Take a look here

    "pico script.sh" OR Any Of Your Favorite Text Editor Instead Of Pico

    #!/bin/sh
    export http_proxy=http://hostnameort

    FOR FTP

    #!/bin/sh
    export http_proxy=http://hostnameort
    export ftp_proxy=http://hostnameort
