apt-get, update manager & synaptic behind proxy
« on: January 20, 2012, 03:21:47 PM »
I am having a problem with my Ubuntu desktop 11.04. My Company implemented a proxy where everything has to go thou and it used AD integration for user authentication. I added proxy settings to several locations on my system and apt-get, update manager and synaptic package manager are not working. Firefox asks every single time when I start it for User name and password and I have to enter DOMAIN\Username and my password for it to work. I added the proxy information to the following configurations:

1. <System><Preferences><Network-Proxy>
2. /etc/bash.bashrc and exported it
3. /etc/apt/apt.conf
4. gconf-editor <system><http_proxy>

and none helped to make it work.

I am wondering if there is a possibility that certain symbols are not allowed to be used for that like a - or and !?

I tried the following syntax for the configuration files:

http://usernameassword@ip-addressort

anything I forgot or did wrong?

Please let me know if you need more information.
