linux proxy setting up

Proxy and port combination

Most programs (that support proxies at all) support this method. The easiest way to set it up, it to edit /etc/profile.d/ file. It should contain the following:

export http_proxy=
export ftp_proxy=

Most programs should then (on next logon) be able to use the proxies. Some may need to be told explicitly though. The proxy hostname is '' and the port is 3128.
