    Default update error

    I am behind a proxy server, so i can't ping external servers.
    like if i ping google.com it returns unkown host
    therefore when i type apt-get update
    i can't connect to the update website. Is there any way to download updates??

    Hi,

    well, you have to configure the proxy fist

    for your terminal session:

    HTTP
    export http_proxy=hxxp://x.x.x.x:3128

    with authentication
    export http_proxy=http://user : pass@proxyserver : port
    (without spaces, just hate the smilies..)

    HTTPS
    export http_proxy=hxxps://x.x.x.x:3128


    if you need svn through a proxy, edit (go to section http-proxy)
    /etc/subversion/servers
