Linux version cannot access internet through proxy

I have installed Caedium on a machine running RedHat v6, to access the internet we need to go through a proxy. When I start Caedium it tries to access the internet but fails, I have tried setting the global computer proxy address but this doesn't help.

How can I set Caedium to access the internet through a proxy. Or how do I check for updates without using Caedium?

Environment variable http_proxy set?

By "global computer proxy address" do you mean the environment variable http_proxy?

If not in your .bashrc try adding:

export http_proxy=<hostname>:<port number>

by global computer proxy address I meant under Preferences > Network Settings.

I have just modified the .bashrc file as you suggested and now it is working fine, Thanks.
