I installed a Ubuntu 16.04 VirtualBox and wrote the apt.conf file to access Internet via my proxy:
And now I can
I also configured Firefox (a.w.a. Opera) to connect through the proxy.
From Preferences > General > Network Proxy > Settings, I ticked the "Automatic proxy configuration URL" option and typed the URL to my proxy script:
This also works and I can browse the wonders of the web.
However, when I try to access the Internet through other softwares (e.g. give my license in CLion or connect to my GitKraken account) my request fails, and it looks like the software cannot access Internet through the proxy.
In my VM configuration window, I changed the network access type from NAT to Bridged, yet it doesn't work & GitKraken tells me again that it can't connect to the server (even though it asked for my credentials to connect to the proxy, which it didn't do before).
I also tried to set general setting for proxy on Ubuntu in Settings > Network > Network Proxy. I chose the manual method and gave the URL to my proxy script in the HTTP Proxy field.
Is there a step that I missed for configuring Internet connection? What can I do to set the proxy configuration for softwares that aren't browsers or in CLI?
