I am using Ubuntu 14.04 LTS(64 bit)
I am not able to access internet due to failed proxy authentication process. I have specified a proxy server in FireFox -> Network ->Manual.. As soon as I browse a website -> Firefox shows the following:
"Proxy Authorization Required Description:Authorization is required to access the proxy"
Is there any solution to get the pop window to enter the username, password to complete the authorization process ?
Additionally, Terminal also fails in updating the setup. It also shows "407 Proxy authorization required"
What I have done so far
I have done the following:
Disabled the option "Block pop up windows" in the Firefox settings
Put "username:password@proxyserver:portno/" in Network Proxy->Manual in Firefox.
Used Network Proxy->Use System Settings with the same format. in step 3.
Changed the default option to user options of many config parameters in firefox namely:
Changed the export parameters (environ. variables)for http_proxy, https_proxy etc to the same format specified in Step 3.
All the above specified steps fails.
I have pinged the proxy server, it replies. So, the communication to proxy server happens.
I've got no clue how to solve this issue. Please reply at the earliest.
