how to apt-get using an existing proxy?


Hi all,

I've successfully installed a (Debian-based) Mepis Linux and would like to try the apt-get mechanism. The machine can ping my proxy server at 192.168.69.1, but it cannot see anything outside the intranet.

I assume this is due to the missing proxy server setup. I already tried the following without final success:
- export http_proxy=192.168.69.1:80
on a command line before an external ping.
- looked for the file /etc/sysconfig/network
(not present in Mepis Linux)
- edited /etc/resolv.conf to include my provider's DNS IPs

The firewall on the proxy server machine is configured to accept everything from IP address-space 192.169.68.1-255

What else can I do so that the Debian machine can access the internet?

Yes I encounter the same problem as you.

I can ping the site but I can't apt-get update. I'm also behind a proxy server.
