HTTP proxy information in the standard form


I am installing Ubuntu operating system on to a open source hardware Soc(system on chip) i.e beagleboard-xm. While I am booting it I need to configure the network. I have to enter an HTTP proxy information in the standard form. It prompted to type in the standard form as "http://[[user] [ass] @]host[ort]/" . But I am not able to understand this standard form. I request you to please explain me the standard form in detail.

What do you need explained?? You replace user with the user ID on the proxy server; pass with that users password; host with the host name/ip address OF the proxy server, and port with the port number the proxy listens on. Very self-explanatory, easily found with a Google search too. Perhaps there's someone else with more experience at your company who can help you????

Also bear in mind that you only need to enter proxy information if you are planning on connecting through the internet using a proxy. If you are not then you should leave that blank.

Indeed correct; good catch, 273. I assumed (dangerous), the OP posted it because they NEEDED that info.

this is how it looks:

Code:
export http_proxy=http://user:password@proxy.blah.com:8080/
export ftp_proxy=http://user:password@proxy.blah.com:8080/
