Raspberry Pi Getting started with Raspberry Pi Proxy Configuration


Example

If you are behind a proxy and need to connect to the internet, you can use:

export http_proxy="http://username:password@host:port/"

For configuring the proxy inside apt-get:

cd /etc/apt/apt.conf.d

Create a file named 10proxy:

sudo nano 10proxy

Without authentication add the following line:

Acquire::http::Proxy "http://yourproxyaddress:proxyport/";
Acquire::https::Proxy "http://yourproxyaddress:proxyport/";

With authentication:

Acquire::http::Proxy "http://username:password@yourproxyaddress:proxyport/";

The / at the very end was important. Without it it does not work.
