Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail Proxy Settings



So I just installed a new Operating System, Linux Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail on my laptop, ACER 4745G (intel i5, ATI HD5470, 4GB RAM, and for other specs you can google it)

I installed this OS and got sick with its proxy settings, since I was a newbie in Linux OS. After googling for a few minutes I found it, and I think it’s worthed to to share with all for netizens 😀

So, the scenario was I must installed rubygem to upload my assignments at appfog.com and my computer was behind ai3 (my campus proxy).

First, open terminal :

export HTTP_PROXY=http://youruserid:yourpassword@

For my case :

export HTTP_PROXY=http://ai3userid:ai3password@cache.itb.ac.id:8080

After that you can access only HTTP via proxy. To apply this proxy for another protocols just change HTTP_PROXY to HTTPS_PROXY and http://” to https://”. So does another protocols, FTP, ALL_PROXY, etc.

to make sure that you have apply these configurations to your protocols, just type this on your terminal

sudo gedit etc/profile

I hope this post can help others who encounter the same problems with me 🙂



  1. Right here is the perfect website for everyone who hopes to find out
    about this topic. You understand so much its almost tough to argue with you (not that I really would want to…HaHa).
    You certainly put a brand new spin on a subject that has been written about for years.
    Wonderful stuff, just wonderful!

  2. It should be noted that while Google has targeted many article distribution sites,
    you will not be penalized for having your content on these sites- the
    more likely possibility will be these back links will have less power and
    thus be less effective- so there is no need to remove any of your content from these sites.
    So if you need to be on top of the search results, SEO
    is the key. SEO on Google Zebra will be focused on creating useful,
    transparent and unique data, but the main change will be
    the power social signal has.
