I am having an issue which I am unable to diagnose. I am unable to access outside the local network from the command line. Strangely, ftp works from the command line. But ping, links, traceroute, wget or other utilities are unable to connect. The network works fine from graphical browsers like firefox. We have a network proxy at the workplace which I set using environment variables http_proxy and so on. Any ideas on how could I diagnose this?
