    Question Use a system wide proxy

    Hello I am inside a LAN network which uses a squid proxy as a gateway to the internet.
    I can run Iceweasel with the proxy (address: port:3128) because it has manual proxy settings.
    I want to know how to set up my entire system to use the proxy to connect to the internet.
    There was such an option available on BackTrack and I also changed the proxy in Applications->System Tools->Preferences->System Settings->Network->Network Proxy. I also set the environment variables all_proxy, ALL_PROXY, http_proxy, HTTP_PROXY, ftp_proxy, FTP_PROXY, https_proxy, HTTPS_PROXY to but still without success. I cant even ping
    I can ping my gateway and the proxy server(
    I also set up proxychains in strict mode to use and still cant ping or nmap
    Xchat also doesnt work with manual proxy settings
    Is there anything I'm doing wrong or can someone please help me?

    I have a slightly different problem.
    I have a corporate script .PAC and its content shows me an HTTP proxy on 8080.
    After setting up the Automatic proxy on System Settings > Network I can browse the web using my credentials asked by Iceweasel
    However bash isn't working. After some research I could find the export command (export http_proxy=http://user: pass@server: port).
    Unfortunately it would store a plain version of my corporate password, what isn't acceptable.
    Setting up just the server also doesn't work. It don't ask me for credentials as I thought it could do.
    Any suggestions? Thx.
