Apt from behind a firewall
I am trying to use apt-get from behind a firewall but am not sure exactly
how to set up the apt.conf file. When I normally ftp to a site outside the
firewall the procedure is as follows:
(1) Should I copy the ftp part of the example in /usr/doc/apt/examples to
my /etc/apt.conf file?
(2) What is the meaning of the two proxy entries in the ftp part?
(3) Which user and passwd entries should I use? There are two sets. And
should I use it in the same way as when I normally ftp to a server outside
(4) What else should I do?
(5) Using 2.2r6
