Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I have a HP workstation running Ubuntu 12.04. I have installed likewise and joined it to the corporate domain at my work. I have set the proxy settings in system -> network -> network proxy and applied system wide.

I can browse the web no problem however apt-get fails with an ISA authentication failure.

I have modified the /etc/apt/apt.conf file from

Acquire::http::proxy "http://proxy:port"


Acquire::http::proxy "http://DOMAIN\user:password@proxy:port"

but I am still getting an authentication error.

I have changed the password a few times, and used different accounts to the same affect. I also ran

sudo http_proxy=http://DOMAIN\user:password@proxy:port/ apt-get update

but the same issues occurred.

Any help would be appreciated

See my blog here which explains how to configure CNTLM and get authenticate with Microsoft ISA Proxy .

Seem you need to install and setup a local cntlm proxy to made auth to your, i guess, Win domain, then set as default proxy into your /etc/apt/apt.conf to use it
