[ubuntu] Proxy configuration

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello, I'm from Romania, and I'm new to your community. Normally I do not write into forums because any thing can be found on the internet but I'm a little stuck with a problem. In the network I work, there is a proxy server ( used to access the internet. So I use Applications --> System Tools --> System Settings --> Network --> Network Proxy for my configuration. Cli tools ignore this so I use "set http_proxy=" and check with env. But still there are some tools (e.g. telnet) that won't use the proxy. So is it possible to configure the proxy (Hardware)
