    aptitude and the command line use different settings, try this on the command line first:

    Code:
    export http_proxy="http://username:Password@my.proxy.server:port"

    Oh, I forgot, if the above works, put it into the end of /etc/profile and it will be set everytime you logon.

    No problem, it just sets an environment variable, same as SET in windows. you should also add it to /etc/profile so it sets it at logon for you.

    It creates a session variable basically - so when you log out it'll disappear and you'll need to run it again next login.

    You can edit your /etc/profile to contain that line though, so it gets put in by default.
