Setting the proxy at the command line

Recommended Posts

I can't manually set my proxy in CentOS 4 . I can set it in my web browser which will then, as expected, prompt me for my ID and password and then my browser has net access. But this doesn't do me any good for command-line internet access. I've tried: export http_proxy="http://<username>:<password>@<proxy addr>:<proxy port>/" with and without the trailing slash, with and without my domain preceding my user name, but no luck. Any ideas? EDIT - It's not just a CentOS problem. I'm having the same problem with Zenwalk; Firefox can authenticate with the proxy but I can't do it on the command line.
