Running Commands behind Proxy
How to run Linux Commands like apt,wget,git,pip etc behind a proxy
Most of the Companies use some kind of proxy(like squid proxy) to monitor,filter the internet traffic out of then Internal Network. Usually this works OK, but sometimes some tools which we will list below cannot be downloaded until use the proxy address. This write-up is a collection of some of these tools and commands to help us to download the tools.Assumption here is that you already know the IP Address:Port where the proxy is running and you are running these commands as “root”.
Git behind a proxy
First set the proxy and then run the git clone command:
export https_proxy=export https_proxy=http://192.168.10.10:3128
git clone https://github.com/diego-treitos/linux-smart-enumeration.git
These are example IP Address and git repo, replace them with what you own proxy IP and Port and the repo.
Apt behind a proxy
http_proxy=http://192.168.10.10:3128 apt update
http_proxy=http://192.168.10.10:3128 apt install clang-9 — install-suggests
Wget behind a proxy
wget http://raw.githubusercontent.com/diego-treitos/linux-smart-enumeration/master/lse.sh -e use_proxy=yes -e http_proxy=192.168.10.10:3128
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/diego-treitos/linux-smart-enumeration/master/lse.sh -e use_proxy=yes -e https_proxy=192.168.10.10:3128
So as you can see above in certain cases we can replace https with http also.
Yum/Dnf behind a proxy
Append proxy server details to /etc/yum.conf :
Then run the command:
yum -y install pykickstart
dnf -y install pykickstart
Pip behind a proxy
cURL behind a proxy
Note: If the proxy is using username and password add in the requests which we made above:
More command will be added once I discover them while doing my work :), Thanks for reading.
