I tried something I saw in some other thread

I created a file named .wgetrc in /root

I typed http_proxy=http://192.xxx.xxx.xxx:8080
(xxx=quad)

and again used console to download favicon.ico from google and guess what?
It Did

I then started PupGet Manager and tried to install a package from http site
guess what? again
It Did Not

Any ideas ? anyone

ideas? ... yes

you have got wget to work with http protocol thru your proxy ... it probably stiill does not work with ftp protocol ... if you chose the ibiblio website, it is an ftp website and the wget test may be usng ftp protocol, so the wget test in pupget might fail

if you try the nluug.nl site, it uses http protocol and might work

basically, all you have to do to get many of your programs to work with your proxy is to put

export https_proxy=http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8088
export http_proxy=http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8088
export ftp_proxy=http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8088

in the file /etc/profile.local
if the file doesn't exist, you would need to create it

you could put it in /etc/profile, but profile.local is a better place to put it

i'm not sure if
export https_proxy=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8088
would work

i'm not sure if
export ftp_proxy=http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8088
should be
export ftp_proxy=ftp://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8088

you probably have to setup Sylpheed email in the sylpheed options

Here is how my .wgetrc file looks like

Quote:
http_proxy = 192.168.0.2:8080
ftp_proxy = 192.168.0.2:8080
https_proxy = 192.168.0.2:8080


i opened up console and typed
wget http://www.google.com/favicon.ico
wget worked like a charm and downloaded the file to root

Now I tried your idea with /root/.etc/profile.local
No Luck Sylpheed yet

Then I created a file .sylpheedrc in /root and make it look like .wgetrc. the Godforsaken Sylpheed didn't work

What next ?

what do I do to download my Mail from my POP3 mail account


If push comes to shove, use webmail. If your mail service doesn't have a webmail feature, I know there are other sites that can access any POP3 account and load the files to them. They can also access multiple accounts, sort of like an online email-client. The one I used to use also let you change your address, and I played a little prank on my sister and mom with it Smile

i've never configured Sylpheed to use a proxy

something like this might (or might not) work:

click Configuration, Preference for Current Account
you can configure Server Information on the basic tab
there are different protocols ... i use pop3
for Server For Receiving you would put the address of your proxy
probably for SMTP Server (send) too
for User ID you would put my-id@my-mail-server.com
you might have to set the port on the advanced tab

something like what they do here, except the address of their proxy is 127.0.0.1, and they only have it setup for receiving

i don't think there's an easier way to do it

A very good ide but not feasable for me as I need to have my mail in some local folder to carry arround with me. Some times I am at a place where internet connection is not available but I can still play arround with my mail like drafting etc if it is in my Puppy

by the way, 192.168.0.2 is a local ip address
only machines on your local network can get at your proxy using that address ... my computer's local ip address is 192.168.0.169, but you can't connect to my machine using that address

of course, you could download and install another email program, like Thunderbird ... it would probably be easier to configure than Sylpheed ... just put the ip and port in the proxy section of options

Can you explain a little more on this please.

i just threw that in for the people reading this thread that might not know about local and external addresses

if the address of your proxy is 192.168.0.2, that is a local ip ... only machines on your local network (lan) can use your proxy

there are proxies that have internet addresses, and anyone connected to the internet can connect to the proxy and use it ... usually they have id's and passwords ... a person might use the proxy to do something disreputable, and records would show that the proxy machine was doing it, and not the person going through the proxy

the point is, it's safe to tell people what the address of your proxy is, if it's a local address like 192.168.0.2

pitbos, you can tell if it's a local or external address by the numbers. I don't know much more than that about it. I read somewhere that numbers within a certain range are reserved for local addresses and other numbers are reserved for external addresses. Use Google, or better yet the wikipedia, to find out more.

IPs beginning with 192.168.x.x and 10.0.x.x are local. All others are external.

If you're interested in more detail the following article put out by 3COM is very good reading:
