How to set wine (linux) internet proxy


If you are using Linux Ubuntu and you are behind a proxy, you can configure the operating system to use the proxy server to connect to the internet. Linux Ubuntu includes a gnome setting for the Network Proxy. In Linux Ubuntu, go to System, Preferences, and then Network Proxy. In Network Proxy Preferences dialog box under Proxy Configuration tab, enter your proxy server and port number then click Close.

After that, go to System, Administration, and then select Synaptic Package Manager. In Synaptic Package Manager, go to Settings then Preferences. Select Network tab then under Proxy Server, select “Manual proxy configuration”. Next, enter your proxy server and port number. If you use a username and password, click Authentication then enter the details.

When you are finished, click OK. Start Mozilla Firefox then go to Edit and then Preferences. In Firefox Preferences dialog box, select Advanced tab, Network tab, and then click Settings. In Connection Settings dialog box under “Configure Proxies to Access the Internet”, select “Manual proxy configuration”. Enter your proxy server and port number then click OK.

And that’s it. Linux Ubuntu is now configured to use your proxy server and connect to the internet via Mozilla Firefox.
