This guide describes how to access a network (e.g. the Internet) through a proxy server.
In many cases you need to configure a proxy to be able to connect your Raspberry Pi to the internet. This guide will help you with that.
For setting the proxy system-wide we need to change the /etc/environment file. In this case "nano" was used as the text editor but you can also use your preffered one.
sudo nano /etc/environment
Substitute your own proxy information and add the following lines to the file and save them.
Reboot your system and you should be all set up.
Note: Implementing changes to the /etc/environment file is the proper way of setting the proxy. But in some cases this does not work, so you might consider implementing the changes also into the /etc/profile file or the ~/.profile file.
sudo nano /etc/profile sudo nano ~/.profile
Proceede as specified above and then it should work for you as well.
To be able to use "apt-get" we need to configure the proxy. For this we need to run the following steps:
Create a new file with an editor (here: nano):
cd /etc/apt/apt.conf.d sudo nano 10proxy
Add one of the following lines, depending on whether or not an authentication needs to be included and replace the placeholders with your proxy information.
Save and then reboot your Raspberry Pi and you should be able to run an update.
