I’m using Solaris on my work’s computer, as I said in another post (in Spanish). I also have installed an OpenSolaris 2009.06 in a virtual machine for training purpose. However, we have to use a HTTP Proxy for surf on the Internet, with authentication.
If you want to navegate, you can setup the proxy in System bottom -> Settings -> Proxy. But Package Manager doesn’t use this settings to connect to the repositories.
You must use the command-line setup as following:
# export http_proxy=”http://username:email@example.com:8080″
# export http_proxy=”http://proxy.test.com:8080″
if you proxy doesn’t use authentication.
After that, in the same terminal, execute as root:
And now, you can update or install applications.
