Configuring Web Proxy on CentOS

If your internet connection is behind a web proxy, you need to configure the following on your CentOS server:

System-wide proxy settings - add the following lines to your /etc/environment file:

# vi /etc/environment


To apply these settings without restarting the machine run the following commands on the bash shell:

export http_proxy="http://proxysrv:8080/"
export https_proxy="https://proxysrv:8080/"
export ftp_proxy="ftp://proxysrv:8080/"
export no_proxy=".mylan.local,,host1,host2"

You also need to configure yum:

# vi /etc/yum.conf

What corporate management say about us?

Rajesh is very knowledgeable instructor he has a good exposure on real time issue and case studies he is experienced in large environment issue and challenges. I really liked how Rajesh used a lot of examples so that concepts were more easily understood, I like the examples that Rajesh give to help us remember things…they are usually real scenario, real life problems that we encounter frequently. <br /> He is well organised in terms of study materiel that you can refer anytime after you complete your course. His blogs are crisp and has to the point key content that he discussed during session to remember if you refer them remotely.
