[ACCEPTED]-How do I use cygwin behind the corporate firewall-cygwin
Just for the records if you need to authenticate 1 to the Proxy use:
Taken from: http://samueldotj.blogspot.com/2008/06/configuring-cygwin-to-use-proxy-server.html
Most applications check one of the following 2 environment variables (
gem even checks both), so try putting 1 this code in your
proxy=http://host.com:port/ export http_proxy=$proxy export HTTP_PROXY=$proxy
I doubt that your corporate firewall allows 5 PING, but the others all appear to be one 4 form of http or another. On a Linux system, you 3 can set your HTTP proxy as an environment 2 variable, so in bash, type:
There is a similar 1 environment variable for FTP (ftp_proxy).
If I just use what Vlax and Mohsen Nosratinia 5 suggested (
export http_proxy=http://yourusername:yourpassword@host:port/), it will only work half of 4 the programs (some of the installs will 3 work but not all) for my company.
By adding 2 another line it will work for all (maybe 1 most) at least in my situation.
export http_proxy=http://yourusername:yourpassword@host:port/ export https_proxy=$http_proxy
You can also set it on Windows environment 3 variables and cygwin will load it on startup (little bonus: any 2 command prompt on windows will also have 1 it set).
