proxy is only working with GUI but not when I set through terminal with ~/.bashrc
gb flag

I have read a lot of guides about setting a proxy for ubuntu. I can do it with the GUI in the network settings and it automatically starts using the proxy I specified and when I open firefox or chrome to check my ip it shows the proxy ip.

But I'm not able to get it working with terminal by editing the ~/.bashrc file. I do it like this:

sudo nano ~/.bashrc

then add this at the end of the file

Proxy connection drops at regular intervals

My system has Ubuntu20.04 and a LAN connection through an institutional proxy server. It worked just fine up until a month ago. Since then, every 5-6 hours the proxy server refuses connections. It takes disconnecting the lan cable to get the connection back up. Another thing is when this happens, settings still shows that lan is 'wired connected', suggesting that the issue is not hardware related. I tri ...

What happens if proxy is not applied system wide in Ubuntu 18.04?

I'm using Ubuntu 18.04, I see that there is not an option to apply system wide proxy in Network Settings. Instead, I need to edit etc/environment.

SQUID Ubuntu - Can you connect to a Squid proxy from another network
bd flag

I've been playing with Squid in Ubuntu to set up a proxy server I can use when I'm out of the country.

I was able to set it up so that any device in the proxy's network can connect through it, but realised that it might be limited to just that.

So, Is it possible to connect to the squid proxy from another network? If so, what should I do/change?

Any suggestion/advice is appreciated

Thank you
