I have a Intel Hardware machine in my corporate LAN on which I installed Windows Xp and Internet seems to work. I formatted the disk and installed Ubuntu 9.04 as per the requirement and internet seems to work on Firefox Browser. But when I tried installed an application which needs internet to download the package seems not to work.When I try pinging google it worked but the link for Downloading package doesnt seem to work through commandline. When I run:
sudo apt-get update
it fails to connect to Ubuntu Repository.
I do have a OpenSolaris Machine too which needs online package for creating zones through internet but that too failed.
I attempted editing the IP on /etc/hosts and providing corresponding IP to Hostname but it dint work.
Also, When I tried opening the Browser on Firefox it asked me for DOMAIN Username and Password and it went fine. Can I have a way connect to internet through proxy client on commandline.Pls Suggest.
