Ubuntu Networking :: Proxy Settings On 10.04 - No Way To Enter Authentication Details
May 6, 2010
I need to enter credentials for a system wide proxy, on a fresh install of Kubuntu 10.04. Everything hunky dory, but: Network Settings->Proxy->Authorization has 'username:' and 'password' grayed out all the time; even at 'Manually specify ...'. The only 'alternative' (not to chose from) is 'Prompt as needed'. But I don't get any prompt, and so I'm out of luck. To me, this looks like a bug. Because one should be able to enter a username and a password there, for good.
My college providers shifted to a different setting.. I'm not sure what needs to be done. On windows, under the connections tab you need to change the proxy settings and put in the IP address and enter the port to 3000. Questions:
1. where lies the linux (ubuntu 10.04) variant to execute the operation.
2. What can be the major obligations of such a change?
I am sure its siimple enough, but I can't get my net to work properly. The connection provided to the internet is through wireless routers.
excuse if this is incorrect section, not entirely sure where it would belong. I rarely find myself posting as i rarely have any issues. But this is persistently annoying, tho not a deal-breaker. Currently running latest Ubuntu 10.04, fully updated. Everything works fine, even better than any previous releases. No problems worth mentioning. But this is annoying, so anyway, here I am.
Installed Miro, loads up and runs fine, can download no probs. The section at the top where it says "account", and you sit over it and it drops down a window for your login details (username, password) so as to recall your personal settings, preferences, etc, but it's not working. By this, I mean the drop-down appears, but clicking the mouse in the window on the lines does not seem to register with it, you can't enter anything. Annoying, slightly frustrating. Has anyone had any experience with this,
I've been trying to set up my printer that I'm sharing through a desktop running Windows 7 and am having trouble getting the authentication details to stay saved, or even work, for that matter.
No matter whether or not I tell the New Printer program to remember my authentication details, it doesn't. If I tell it to prompt me if it needs details, I get no prompt. So, in order for me to print a document, I have to tell it to print, then go into the print queue and authenticate it from there.
1. IIs there a way, either manually or through GUI, to either save my authentication details or just have it prompt me upon printing to save me from going into the print queue?
2. This isn't exactly on-topic, but it came up while I tried to set up the printer. Has anyone else had their SMB URI come up incorrectly with the spaces incorrectly rendered as "20" instead of "%20:?
Am using Fedora 15, in which i was able to configure the proxy server and authentication. i confirmed this by configuring web broswer and it works. Now the problem is that i want to deploy it out to other computer system(client) i dont want to use the transparent proxy because the Proxy Authentication will not work. I even tried to configure a DHCP server if it will work but i cant still configure for other computer system to work.
I just can't set any proxy settings in Gnome 3 Network settings. Is it a bug or...? I installed Ubuntu 11.04 and then used a PPA to install Gnome 3. Some other "problem" is I can't set single click opening of folders...
I am setting proxy for apt-get application in command line using xporthttp_proxy="http://usrnameasswrd@hostort"But my password contains special characters whi is mandatory in our system. the special characters are not recognised properly and it give authentication failure when i use apt-get..how do i work around this problem?? i know that i could put the hex code for the special characters so the system will recognise it properly, but i dont know how exactly, as i tried it but seems not working.
I recently upgraded to ubuntu 9.10 on my dell d830 ..everything worked great no issues. did my normal mods and packaged updates and the works. this laptop i used at work and home, at work i use a windows 7 vm running ontop of my ubuntu and at home well ubuntu of-coarse. work has a proxy setting and my home network doesnt, so i decided to create two profiles on the system > preferences > network proxy One for home > with direct Internet connect And Another for work for defined proxy settings.
Everything was cool...then the one day when i tried to install graphics card driver, it gave a "cant not resolver proxy " error...i checked my profile and it was on home...i also deleted all profiles and set it to default and it still dont work..firefox works cause you can set proxy setting directly on firefox , but now i cant do any "apt-get" because some how ubuntu is still picking up my work network proxy setting? somehow it like stuck on the work network proxy setting although i delete the profiles too...?
how do i get yum, KPackageManager to use System Proxy Settings for there network access ? by proxy i mean it's a program that uses my phone as the proxy.here is the command adb forward tcp:8080 tcp:8080
now i got it to work for firefox like this localhost 8080 for all protocols.did the same in KDE proxy settings localhost 8080 for all protocols..just need to know hot to configure yum and kPackageManage to use it as well?
An application that supports SOCKS 5 protocol can forward its network connection over ssh and dynamically forward to any host name that you specify isn't it ? that means firebox web browser can use SOCKS 5 protocol can be used by pass proxy settings isn't it ? so how can a sys admin remotely detect if a particular user is bypassing proxy settings using SOCKS 5 protocol ?
I have installed Ubuntu 8.04 inside windows and every time I go to the terminal and type "su" it asks me for a password. Well the password I set before the install doesn't work, it gives me an authentication failure. I thought that since it was inside windows it didn't set me as a root user. I go to user groups and I see my name there and then "root" above it, but its grayed out. Is there a default root password I can enter?
Earlier today I was setting up ssh on a new computer. I modified permissions on the Passwd folder to complete the setup. I few hours later when I went to sudo something in the terminal I received the notice of an incorrect password (after using sudo prior to this), even though it was typed correctly.
I tried to restart the computer to solve the issue, but was met with an Authentication Failed message, regardless of the user I tried to log in with. I was hoping I could log in with recovery mode but was unable to do that as well. I have searched a substantial amount and have not found a solution. Could this be an issue with permissions on either the Passwd or Shadow folder? If so, could these be changed if I ran a Live CD?
I setup Postfix on my Ubuntu 10.04 LTS server but I am getting an error saying: Code: Technical details of permanent failure: Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the recipient domain. We recommend contacting the other email provider for further information about the cause of this error. The error that the other server returned was: 530 530 SMTP authentication is required. (state 14).
I just installed Fedora 12 on HP Pavilion (dual boot with Windows vista). I made it all the way through the installation and created my user account. A few seconds later I got the login screen asking for my password. I enter the password and get "Authentication Failure."
The name that shows up on the login screen is my full name, not the user name that I created. Is that wrong?
How can I edit the system proxy setting using the terminal? Which file contains this settings? I want to edit this automatically using cronjobs, cause from 8-5 I need to use a proxy, but at home I don't need the proxy. How do I fix this?
Well, as many proxy applications, GNOME Network Proxy Preferences only allow to ignore hosts. What I want to do is exactly the opposite. I only want to use the proxy for few sites. Is it possible to define only the allowed hosts in any way?
PS: I know FoxyProxy add-on for Firefox does this, but 1)I don't use Firefox and 2)I want the proxy settings system wide not only for browser.
I have an issue with Adobe AIR, which I use to run Tweetdeck. It keeps on asking me to authenticate for my proxy server - every time Tweetdeck tries to load someone's avatar, for instance, which is making it pretty unusable right now.
I'm not sure why it's doing this, other than that I've just upgraded to 9.10 (well, to Mint 8, actually, but I would think the issue is the same). I've got all my proxy settings working, and indeed AIR seems to be able to read the settings from somewhere (it autocompletes the authenticate box with the correct details), but it just doesn't seem to be able to authenticate once and then be done with it, like it had done previously.
when i use the terminal, and i run "sudo apt-get update", there is a notification which says, "407 proxy authentication required". i use the internet of our school which requires its users to log into its proxy server so that the user can have access to the internet. the problem is i cannot run update or install commands through the terminal, though i can connect to the internet through firefox.
On 8.04 when I connect to the internet for work, it normally asks me for proxy authentication. When I type in the correct credentials, it allows me access to the web. For some reason, when I use 10.04 to access the web via firefox or chromium, I do not get the proxy authentication dialog box, so I cannot access the web.
I've just installed Ubuntu Server for the first time with the goal as setting it up as a proxy server for our Apple computers here since I can get neither ISA of OS X Server's firewall to play properly. So far I have the machine authenticating against our OS X OpenLDAP server and multiple NIC's setup ready to be connected to the outside world. My question is does anyone have a preference on what proxy I should be using? So far my search efforts seem to of turned up Squid Proxy as a favorite among Ubuntu users but I can't seem to work out how to get it authenticating against my OpenLDAP server.
I intergrated the CAS on Liferay, it is working fine for single service. Now my goal is to configure Proxy Authentication on CAS to authenticate set of Liferay Services. I used the following services for proxy authentication, but unable to validate it.
i want to setup a proxy authentication on fedora 15 for minimum of 5 users using squid but i had successfully setup a proxy sever on my system and its working perfecly.# vi /etc/squid/squid.conf this was the output.
how can I change the text in the Squid Proxy Authentication Dialog Box...? I would like to change the text "The proxy localhost:3128 is requesting a username and password. The site says: "Squid Proxy Caching Server". Is there a file or a configuration to change the text?
I am using Fedora 12-i386 in my laptop and have installed teamviewer5 for linux. I am unable to connect teamviewer. It always says, "Not Ready, Please Check your Connection". My network needs a proxy authentication. Teamviewer for Windows works well in my desktop having Win XP, in the same network.
