Proxy problem
I am behind a passworded proxy. I can connect to the Internet using Firefox, Chrome or even Synaptic. But when I set the bash environment variable as:

export http_proxy=http://user:password@proxy_address
and try to download the files using wget like bizip2 or debian packages I get 404 error and with the pure domain names like or I just get the default proxy password change page as output file.

What is the problem. I even tried changing the user-agent of wget.

for wget use --proxy-user=user --proxy-password=password

Used that too. Still same problem.

I missed to put the port address in the proxy. My bad. Sorry for the trouble that caused you.
