Configuring proxy settings in lynx?

Recommended Posts

Guest chad

Hi all,

 

I'm trying to configure the proxy settings in Lynx (or Links) but can't seem to figure it out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks.

Take a look to the /etc/lynx.cfg file, section ".h1 Proxy"; just edit the parameters you need. ie:

http_proxy:http://theproxyitrust.com:8888/

(if you want the settings for a single user, then create your own copy of that file as ~./lynxrc)

lynx also uses the standard http_proxy and ftp_proxy environment variables. Mandrake also allows you to set these globally (drakproxy I think).

 

$ export http+proxy=http://proxy.mydomain.com:3128

$ lynx
