Re: Cache for Internet Access

Hi Dougie, Thanks for your message. So I gather I have to use this code: Add this stuff to /etc/profile/proxy.sh or ~/.bashrc or ~/.profile (I have a file called "bash.bashrc". Is this the one you mean? I also have files called "profile" and "profile.d") export http_proxy=http://192.168.xxx.ppp:3128...

Re: Cache for Internet Access

I don't have firefox. Firefox isn't included on the latest NOOBS.

It comes pre-installed with Epiphany.

Cache for Internet Access

Hello,

I am using a Raspberry in my workplace.

I can ping google and get an instant response.

How do I enter a cache address for accessing the internet on my work ethernet using a cache proxy server.

I know the proxy address just need to know how to enter correctly in the OS.

Thanks,

noobs.zip doesn't unpack on windows surface pro.

Hello,

Has anybody else had trouble unpacking the Noobs .zip file on a Windows Surface Pro. It does not want to unpack as it says the file is not recognisable even using third party software such as WinZip.

Thanks,

Re: Raspberry PI Model B sudo apt-get update

Hello,

48 hours later I'm still getting the same error message. This is obviously a problem with my Raspberry Pi set-up and not the repositories being offline.

Any idea how I can solve this please.

Raspberry PI Model B sudo apt-get update

Hello,

I am trying to update my raspberry Pi which I haven't turned on for about 1 year.

'sudo apt-get update' is trying to update from wheezy but cannot connect. Is the website down at the moment or is something else wrong?

Re: No Internet Access from RPi

OK, to get a web browser to work (ie Midori and Iceweasel) I have to use a proxy server which my IT dept told me about.

So both browsers work OK now.

But I cannot get "sudo apt-get update" to work.

How do I access the proxy server above from the command line.

Thanks.

Hello, I am trying to connect my RPi at work. I have told my IT dept the MAC address of the RPi and they have logged it on their system.
