Configure Proxy On Linux

Configuring your proxy server for FreeGuide on Linux

If you have a proxy server or are behind a firewall, you may need to follow the instructions below to allow FreeGuide to see past them to the Internet.

NOTE: most home users will NOT need to do this - you are ready to start FreeGuide! Go straight to the UserGuide.

Add 2 lines to the file ~/.bash_profile:

export http_proxy=
export FREEGUIDE_OPTS=-DproxySet=true -DproxyHost= -DproxyPort=8080

Replace "" with your proxy server address, and "8080" with the port it uses.
