Raspberry PI – Setup apt-get to use proxy

IMG_0419My network is bad today. I try to install some bluetooth utility from apt-get. But it take so long to complete only one dependency file. It may take an hour or more..

So, to use proxy with apt-get. Please follow below step

1) Change to apt configuration directory.

pi@raspberrypi ~ $ cd /etc/apt/apt.conf.d

2) Create new file ’10proxy’

pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo nano -w 10proxy

3) Put this line and save then try your apt-get again. You don’t need to reboot.

Acquire::http::Proxy "http://yourproxyaddress:proxyport";

if your proxy have authenticate please use this instead.

Acquire::http::Proxy "http://username:password@yourproxyaddress:proxyport";

  1. Acquire::http::Proxy “http://username:password@yourproxyaddress:proxyport”;

    I had tried with your code, but yet the problem persists, 407 proxy authentication required.

  2. Hi PC Chan,

    Can you try your proxy setting with PC running on same network with same proxy setting? To verify that proxy server work perfect.
