I've defined the following proxy settings in /etc/environment


But if I try to telnet to a source allowed I can see that the request is not getting to the Proxy server (logs on Proxy Server and Firewall). I know the server has access to the Proxy as I've also configured the proxy to be used by apt by creating the file /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/95proxies with

Acquire::http::proxy "";
Acquire::ftp::proxy "";
Acquire::https::proxy "";

I can successfully install applications on the server with access via the Proxy. I've also configured the proxy for git and I can clone/push/pull from a repo, but again cannot telnet to hit github.com port 80

I've rebooted the machine also.

Am I missing something obvious here?

Thanks in Advance
