Setting proxy in Redhat 8.0

I can connect to the internet using the edit --> preferences --> proxy option in Mozilla, but i cannot access the net from the console,
what should i do to configure the proxy settings in my linux box,
i've also downloaded prozilla (which is a console download manager), and since the machine is not directly connected to the net, it always returns an error -- unable to resolve host,
Is there a way to set the global proxy settings for my machine

Proxy settings in a linux box are controlled by two things. The squid.conf file (if using squid) or it's equivalent, and the settings of whatever client browser or program you aim at it. I am not familiar with "console" so I am not sure about that end, but it sounds like you have the proxy side set up or Mozilla wouldn't work. More info is needed about console..
