    Setting up Fog behind a proxy

    I tried the Fog VM at one school at it set up fine -easy peasy.

    But I'm not getting very far in trying to set up my own VM with the latest Fog release.

    Looking at other posts - its seems a bit tricky to get Fog setup on Ubuntu when working behind an RBC proxy.

    Has anyone managed to do this? And is so - what do you need to do?

    regards

    is this at the actuall install level?

    if so i think:
    Code:
    export http_proxy=http://USER:PASS@PROXY:PORT
    should set it before fog uses apt-get to install packages

    Hi, you may have checked this thread, but when I couldn't access the net via the school proxy, I did get it working using the last few posts in Proxy on Ubuntu for Fog

    Not a ubuntu wiz at all, but managed to get it to work.

    It will run behind a proxy, but certain parts of the management interface get very sluggish and the kernel update section doesn't work at all (you can still install more manually though). The actual imaging functionailty doesn't seem to be affected though.
