http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Is there a way to change the network proxy settings from a C program that runs in a terminal window? I know the environment variables for HTTP proxies can be changed with the command: Code:       export http_proxy=http://MyProxy:MyPortNumber and I know the gclib provides a function in stdlib.h , Code:       setenv ( const char * name , const char * value , int overwrite ) that can be used to change environment variables in a shell. Could one write a command line application to change proxy settings of Mozilla Firefox by using the above informat (HowTos)
