Lynx -> HTTP Proxy: How?


How should I setup Lynx to use remote HTTP proxy on port 3128 (SQUID)?

I would guess that you would set an environment variable like:

export HTTP_PROXY=http://your_server_address:3128

or possibly

export http_proxy=http://your_server_address:3128

...before you run lynx or automatically during login

I do not know how it ends up with smiley
But this is correct line

export http_proxy=http://server:3128

Hopefully won't be a smile this time!
