Some time back I configured proxy for fedora to install packages through yum. I forgot how exactly I did it.
Now for another network I don't need proxy. How can I reconfigure my proxy settings?
I have been trying to get my updates on a network that runs a proxy. I have been able to get it working in both Ubuntu and OpenSuse in under 10 minutes, but in Fedora (12) whatever I have tried has not worked.
I set socks5 proxy system> preferences> network middleman to connect through wifi to a router with Firewall may have to unlock something? ping is normal, but if you want to connect to the site by the browser it shows the error:
Unable to connect to the proxy server.
A proxy server is a server that acts as an intermediary between your computer and other servers.
I have just installed Fedora 12 and I'm using KDE 4.3.4 as Desktop manager : everything works fine except for the proxy settings. In System Settings, under Network settings I choose "Manually specify the proxy setting", fillin IP and port for the proxy.
Well,all I ever wanted was to download and install an application from the terminal.
And to my surprise I just can't I tried to reset proxy of the terminal by some commands but it doesn't happen and automatically switches back to this proxy 172.16.0.16 (which apparently was my college proxy). I checked in my system settings too..
we have a problem on a customer network : a software cannot reach the web, but browsers run fine since they have a proxy configured.
The software don't have any option about proxy configuration, and will not be easy to modify just for one client. How can we make it run anyway?
Maybe a web proxy installed on a local server? Another idea?
Since new version of U1 (4.0), it's been claimed that it can read OS proxy settings. But in my case it didn't.
I have my network settings set to "Auto Proxy Discovery". And browsers, mail and other apps are working fine.
I had to configure proxy settings for Dropbox manually (it has such configuration). But how can I configure U1 proxy manually? If it for some reason ignores Auto Proxy Settings.
