Using Debian behind a Proxy

If you are using Debian behind a proxy (e.g. Squid), you just have to declare the following environment variables to use it: export HTTP_PROXY=[IP]:[PORT] export HTTPS_PROXY=[IP]:[PORT] export FTP_PROXY=[IP]:[PORT] An example for [IP]:[PORT] could be 192.168.0.254:3128 In order to stay persistent, you could add the above commands to ~/.profile or /etc/bash.bashrc for example.
