Question!

How to make OpenSUSE work from your workplace or somewhere where credentials are needed for an internal proxy?

In my case, I am working in a company where a proxy is needed to connect to the Internet.

Try some proxy settings

# yast2 --update

Open1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 







Please edit:

# vi /etc/sysconfig/proxy

open2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 









Implement changes to your profile:

# source /etc/sysconfig/proxy

Try to install some packages now:

# zypper install php

open3

 

 

 

 

 








 

It works!

open4

GUI MODE in Opensuse 12.3

Applications > System > Control Center. Search for ‘proxy’.

gui1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 








Insert your credentials as shown in the figure below.

gui2

 

 

 

 

 

 






This method has been tested under my OpenSUSE 12.3 and it works well. If you have any issues please let us know in the comments section below.
