Hi. I'm hooked up to the internet via my university and for some reason they decided to force everyone to use their http proxy. I got firefox working via the local proxy settings, but now I wonder, how do I get every client on my system to use this proxy for http access?
I am interested too.
I did the same for firefox,
I configured gaim to use a proxy too,
Skype seems to work with no changes
I also configured /etc/wgetrc for wget
I have this in my .bashrc
I don't use the pacman.conf proxy options since it fails very often, instead, I set the Xfercommand to use wget
Maybe iptables and DNAT ?
Add this to /root/.bashrc
Or whatever port it uses. Don't put http://
is the place for system-wide settings like that, I think.
