I'm using a Slackware 14 VirtualBox guest on Windows 7 behind a work proxy. Having battled a bit with network settings I've gotten to the point where I can browse the web in Firefox by using the proxy.pac script URL in LAN settings.
My question is how can I set up commandline packages (slackpkg and R in particular) which require the physical proxy address rather than using URL to download content. I can't figure out what the proxy address is that I should update /etc/profile with.
What am I missing here?
