I am using OpenSuse Leap 15.0 with KDE environment on a desktop that is connected to the LAN at my institute. The institute uses a proxy and the settings the system administrator asked to use is:
HTTP proxy: 172.16.0.1, port 3128.'
FTP proxy, SSL proxy and SOCKS host have the same settings. An authentication is also required i.e. I have a username and a password.
I am connecting to the internet using
I can browse websites perfectly using Firefox as the proxy settings and my username and password are saved in
Firefox -- Preferences -- Network proxy -- Settings. However, whenever I try to use the OpenSuse package manager Zypper from the terminal, it fails to connect to any repository. After looking up this problem over the Internet, I understood that this is due to issues with proxy. The proxy settings are not applied globally.
I tried to set up the proxy through
Yast -- Network services -- Proxy, but there proxy URL's are required which I don't have. I also tried to do the same through
System settings -- Network -- Proxy. I chose the
Manually specified proxy option and entered the proxy server details though there was no field for entering username and password. But immediately afterward, If I open
System settings -- Network -- Proxy, I find that the system has automatically reverted back to
Can anyone please guide me in setting up the proxy globally so that Zypper and other programs can connect to the internet?
