http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi , I have access to internet connection through an authenticated proxy server. I got APT to work with this by changing wgetrc and other files. Third party apps (such as thunderbird,empathy) that access the internet are not able to work with the network connection. Any pointers on how I can get them to work with authenticated proxy connection would be much appreciated. System configurations : Dell inspiron 15 R OS : Ubuntu 12.04 Connection type : Direct LAN connection through an authenticated proxy. Thanks, Pushkar Khadilkar (Hardware)
