To use apt-get through a proxy, either make a file in
/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/ called proxy or something that you'll recognise, or make (if it doesn't exist)
/etc/apt/apt.conf and insert the following line:
Acquire::http::Proxy "http://username:[email protected]:port/";
Simply replace username and password with your login details, and replace proxy.server:port with the correct address (in your case, 10.114.7.7:80), so your line will end up something like this:
Acquire::http::Proxy "http://username:[email protected]:80";
If you're required to use the
@ symbol in your username, you'll have to escape it with a backslash (
While escaping characters by using the backlash does not work (e.g.
wget), special characters can be escaped with URL encoding. For instance,
username:my%[email protected]:port. See this list of URL-encoded characters for more information.
