Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

i m not able to help any software due to my proxy settings. my proxy block all the download links.
not able to install software from terminal or synaptic packet manager.
can anyone plz send the alternate download/install method
ALL the links?? I find that pretty hard to believe, but if it is, then there's no way to do it from that internet connection. you'd need to obtain them from a different source, and bring individual deb packages in and install using dpkg.
right, well are you asking for help about making this work, or do you already know why it's not working, as you said in the first post? That just looks like a DNS issue, so either you need a local global DNS server, or make the proxy resolve it for you.
I do not think there is any need to block your system repository links in proxy. As an administrator and Ubuntu user myself, I feel it pretty useless. Unless it is required to save lot of bandwidth. But it still does not seem to be your problem. Even if you are behind a proxy, you can still tell your synaptic to use proxy. If you are not able use internet completely, then as Chris said, check your DNS settings.
Unless I have completely missunderstood the OP, he/she is behind some sort of firewall (outside of their control) which provides and http proxy server that the OP must use for http connections.
OP: can you confirm/clarify your situation.
Well yes, it could be. Some squid running iptables, may be. But squid is mostly used to control internet and filtering. But if you do not need to share internet then why even use proxy?
I think OP needs to come and re-phrase his question or better give more details about the issue.
