For the command
sudo apt-get update
I get following error:
W: Failed to fetch http://ch.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/maverick-updates/multiverse/binary-i386/Packages.gz
407 Proxy Authentication Required (The ISA Server requires authorization to fulfill the request. Access to the Web Proxy filter is denied. )
I am running Ubuntu 10.10 installed on Windows XP using VirtualBox. For Internet connections I am using proxy server with an authentication. I tried to use
gnome-network-proxy tool to set proxy settings system-wide.
/etc/environment has been updated by
http_proxy variable with the format
http://my_proxy:port/, there were no authentication data.
I checked this with Firefox. Browser asked my for login and password and everything was working fine. It was unfortunately not the case for apt-get. I have also tried to do as described here. Unfortunately it does not work.
May it be somehow related to the fact that a proxy is in a Windows domain, any ideas?
My proxy name is http-proxy. Is '-' a special character here?
