Configuration for a client accessing a proxy server

I need to set my Sharp Zaurus to go through a proxy. With Sharp's ROM image there is a little gui for the configuration and I could get on the internet. With open zaurus there isn't a gui for configuration so I was trying to do it through the command line. I have tried
export http_proxy=
export HTTP_PROXY=
export http_proxy=""
export HTTP_PROXY=""
after this I still get messages saying network is unreachable, or unknown address. Is this how to go about setting up a proxy?

Can anyone confirm that that is the right way to configure for a proxy server?

I'm having the same problem.

Some programs like the package manager have there own proxy settings. Other command line tolls like wget etc seem to accpet the http_proxy varible but I cannot get konqueror to work at all with a http proxy.

Has anyone got any ideas?
