Hi I am really a novice in the world of Lynx. Could anyone let me know how could I set up a proxy server address in a laptop to connect to the Wi-fi of a public network. They have given me the IP address, just don't know how to change it. Thanks.
Thanks a lot for u'r reply. I am not sure yet that u got my question right. Say I'm in a library and they gave me an IP address, in XP I can open Explorer, Tools > Internet Options > LAN settings and type the IP address and check the Proxy box. Is there anything similar in Lynx, where you need to change/ type IP address in order to connect to a Public connection who use Proxy server. Thanks.
I'm not sure YOU got your question right.. are you talking about Lynx - a fast and lightweight GPL text based web browser, or Linux, an entire open source unix-like operating system, of which distributions like Ubuntu and Fedora are instances of?
Well proxy servers get used in lots of different places, you're giving a browser example, so if you mean just browser access then the equivalent settings exist in equivalent places on firefox, if that's the browser your using. Same goes for most other browsers.
My VirtualBox registration is hanging forever because I do not have proxy set up systemwide. My browsers are all set, working properly, but not other applications. How do I set up proxy in Linux EVEN before logging in?
