I'm using my college network.Here i have set proxy to 10.30.0.1:8080 to access internet.But i'm not able to set proxy in Raspberry Pi 3.
Navigate to the following folder as follows:
Create a file called
sudo nano 10proxy
Without authentication add this line:
Or with authentication add this line:
Make sure to include the
/ at the end.
For everything else:
Edit this file:
sudo nano /etc/environment
Add this line (with authentication):
Or without authentication:
The proxy on any Linux environment can be set using two files
/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/01proxy (sometimes this file doesnt exist so create one)
now firstly see what are the default setting in these two files using cat command
1.cat /etc/environment ==> create a backup if something goes wrong
using a simple bash script you can disable or enable proxy for terminal written by me : https://github.com/k1941996/Proxy_switcher/blob/master/switch_proxy.txt
simply change the proxy according to your network.
Add these files in your .bashrc file and you can directly switch proxy using simple commands like enableproxy and disableproxy
As of Raspbian GNU/Linux 10 (buster), the syntax for defining environment variables has changed from the older syntax shown in other answers. The
export keyword is no longer supported in the
/etc/environment file, and causes errors like this:
invalid variable name "export http_proxy", ignoring.
/etc/environment and set 3 lines to proxy both secure insecure requests:
http_proxy="http://username:password@proxyaddress:port/" https_proxy="http://username:password@proxyaddress:port/" no_proxy="localhost,127.0.0.1"
Restart the system for changes to take effect. After rebooting, open a terminal and type the following to see if the variables are present:
env | grep proxy
Note that Chromium (the default browser) often caches pages even on a "hard refresh," so your proxy settings may not appear to work. Use an incognito window to open a test site.
