I've installed Ubuntu 14.04, and with I've setup broadband connection, windows 7 allow all internet access, but Ubuntu 14.04 some application access via internet, I can't access Firefox browser and Terminal command line via internet, when running this application then showing me proxy setting... Any one help me, How do I configure proxy manually on Ubuntu 14.04?


Go to Synaptic Package Manager(you can search it from the top left most icon if you are not able to find it)

Then click on Settings->Preferences.

Then go to Network, choose manual proxy configuration and then apply after you have setup the proxy settings. It will work for you.

  • But http_proxy=username:password@host:port here what username and password ? – Rasel Khan Dec 22 '14 at 6:16
  • Here you have to provide that username and password which are saved in the proxy server. If you doesn't know them you have to contact your administrator. – Naman Sogani Dec 22 '14 at 9:34
  • This broadband connection username & password same in the proxy server ? If not how I can setup this ? – Rasel Khan Dec 22 '14 at 11:47
  • Any suggestions on how to get this working on Desktop? The link that Druid posted is from 2004, and I have not gotten it to work, although that could be user error rather than the fact that it doesn't work – JFA Jun 18 '15 at 14:02
