comment Name resolution issues in Ubuntu 10.04
Not at all. You have to understand how a HTTP proxy works. It is a service like every other service in the internet, too. And your software has to be programmed (and configured) to use a proxy. In addition, a proxy never returns an IP for a DNS name, it just fetches the pages on your behalve, and then deliveres them to your browser. However, if you just want to use wget: It supports HTTP proxies. See the wget manpage. Set the *_proxy env variables, and eventually provice proxy username and password with the --proxy-user and --proxy-passwd cmdline parameters.
