Re: How to set Proxy Address

I have set the proxy in etc/environment but apt still hangs and can't connect to the web.

If I use sudo apt-get -o Acquire::http::proxy 111.111.11.11:8080 update. Everything works fine so the proxy is working, apt just is not pulling the settings. How do I get apt working?
