FTP_PASSIVE_MODE wont help, you need to set http_proxy, e.g.: (for csh, tcsh) setenv http_proxy http://squid.example.com:3128 or (for sh, bash, ksh, zsh etc) export http_proxy=http://squid.example.com:3128 I would suggest you put them in /etc/csh.cshrc and /etc/profile respectively so they apply to everything. Any GUI applications, like Firefox, will probably need to be set individually. You might conceivably need to set ftp_proxy and the capitalised versions: HTTP_PROXY and FTP_PROXY, but I think everything should fall-back to http_proxy. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
