Proxy Access

All outbound http(s) traffic must go through the proxy - ( port 3128


To make sure apt uses the above proxy server, you need to add a file to /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/ and put the details into it. Here's how you do it:

~> cd /etc/apt/apt.conf.d
~> sudo nano proxy

You'll be asked to enter your VM password at this point, before nano starts.

In this new file (proxy), type the following:


Hit Ctrl-x, then "y" to save the details.

To set your proxy system-wide you will need to edit you shellrc file. By default this is .bashrc on Ubuntu. Here's how you do it:

~> cd $HOME
~> nano .bashrc

Add the following lines to end of this file

export http_proxy="";
export https_proxy="";
export ftp_proxy="";

Hit Ctrl-x, then "y" to save the details.

Then you will need to logout and log back in for changes to take effect or you can run this command.

~> source .bashrc

And that's it. Simples.
