Re: apt-get and proxies

This probably belongs on debian-user, but anyway

My set up works fine.  Everything goes through the proxy host except
for those machines I have marked "DIRECT" in my /etc/apt/apt.conf.

Apparently.  My /etc/apt/apt.conf proxy settings look like:

  Acquire::http::Proxy "http://proxy.domain:port";;
  Acquire::http::Proxy::FQDN1 "DIRECT";
  Acquire::http::Proxy::FQDN2 "DIRECT";

Everything that doesn't match FQDN1 or FQDN2 gets proxied, while any
matches are not proxied.  FTP proxying should work the same.

FYI, I'm using apt-0.5.4 from testing
