Little background: I am behind a proxy, where we use "automatic proxy config URL" on
During typing of this question I also tried Chromium browser which seems to be working. However, Firefox and terminal seem to be not working properly:
Setup of my Ubuntu:
System Settings - Network Proxy - Configuration URL
http://webproxy.mycompany.com:8080 - applied system wide
Edit - Preferences - Network
Here I tried:
Note - the "no use" means = cannot connect outside
- Automatic Proxy configuration URL -
http://webproxy.mycompany.com:8080- no use
- Use system proxy settings - no use
- Autodetect - no use
The error I am getting when trying to reach askubuntu.com:
Unable to connect
Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at askubuntu.com.
The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments. If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection. If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.
Setup of Chromium - I am not that advanced user here, but it seems it takes system settings
http_proxy=http://webproxy.mycompany.com:8080 https_proxy=http://webproxy.mycompany.com:8080 ftp_proxy=http://webproxy.mycompany.com:8080 no_proxy=.mycompany.com
Defaults env_keep = "http_proxy https_proxy ftp_proxy"
In terminal, I can effectively run
sudo apt-get update but pinging google says this:
PING www.google.com (126.96.36.199) 56(84) bytes of data. --- www.google.com ping statistics --- 10 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 9070ms
How to force Firefox and terminal to reach outside world?
Edit Firefox works on other machines in the same network, so it cannot be security setting on the proxy
