The error message for this problem was correct, the server was in restricted network and did not have access to the Internet. The lab has a proxy server for http and https traffic. The solution was to export http_proxy, https_proxy, and no_proxy environment variables on the Juju host server: export http_proxy=http://squid.internal:3128 export ...

Found a fix here: In my testing, using the Avahi preferred solution of changing the mDNS domain to something else, I did indeed regain the ability to resolve .local hosts from my VPN, but I effectively lost use of all mDNS devices because (I presume) they weren't also changed to advertise in that same replacement local zone. With no idea how (or the ...

Not sure what might have happened to your system, but you may be interested in setting those in your terminal/commandline: export http_proxy="http://user:password@proxy_server:port" export https_proxy="https://user:password@proxy_server:port" Can you actually check what shows: echo $http_proxy (btw - you may use this way for ftp_proxy, too)

The basic thing to do is to make the squid server the default gateway instead of your Internet router. Just add an additional network card to the Ubuntu squid bringing it up to 2 network cards: 1 into your LAN and 1 into your network router. The LAN-side now gets the IP address of the default gateway (probably 192.168.1.1) and the WAN-side gets an ...

I did a little searching and found some answers, not quite identical but should work, it's supposed to be "easy" using the Ubuntu GUI tools. It'll set up some IP tables / NAT magic (somehow), so we were close with using "route - show / manipulate the IP routing table" but just didn't know the "secret words" On the internet connected computer (server), go to ...
