My Pi has Raspbian Jessie and it is behind my college's proxy server. I am able connect to the internet and download packages.

I even tried doing export http_proxy=user:pwd@proxy:port

I am not able to access any website using Chromium browser.

  • IIRC In the settings menu under settings (under advanced settings) you can configure the proxy settings. Commented Dec 22, 2016 at 15:52

Changing the proxy settings is in chromium is normally not necessary since they are picked up from the system.

However, assuming you have already rebooted and restarted chromium, and it still is not working. You can configure the proxy settings for Chromium by clicking the menu (three vertical dots to the right of the address bar), and selecting settings. Then scroll to the bottom of the page and click Show advanced settings. Under the Network heading click Change proxy settings You can also configure the settings from the command line. Use the following command:

man chromium-browser

to get the specifics.

  • Firefox picks up the system proxy, but Chromium doesn't. There is no "Change proxy settings" in Chromium 80.0.3987.87, only "Open your computer's proxy settings".

Use the following command in terminal

chromium-browser --proxy-server="proxy_ipaddress:port"  


chromium-browser --proxy-server=""

Kudos new browser will open with proxy bypass.
