test a remote proxy from the command line


hi

howto test a remote proxy from the command line ?
proxy port should be open:
Code:
# telnet 192.168.0.1 3128
Trying 192.168.0.1...
Connected to 192.168.0.1.
Escape character is '^]'.
but what are next steps to test HTTP ?

I have debian Etch stable on the local machine and on the proxy server.

hmm... why can't you just configure this proxy in your browser and test?
<edit>
Sorry, I missed the command line part.
export http_proxy=http://remote.proxyort
no use wget to get a page
wget www.google.com
</edit>
