Creating an "Apt Proxy Conf" File

Apt loads all configuration files under /etc/apt/apt.conf.d. You can create a configuration specifically for our proxy there, keeping it separate from all other configurations.

  1. Create a new configuration file named proxy.conf.
    sudo touch /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/proxy.conf
  2. Open the proxy.conf file in a text editor.
    sudo vi /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/proxy.conf
  3. Add the following line to set your HTTP proxy.
    Acquire::http::Proxy "http://proxy.server:port/";
  4. Add the following line to set your HTTPS proxy.
    Acquire::https::Proxy "http://proxy.server:port/";
  5. Save your changes and exit the text editor.

Your proxy settings will be applied the next time you run Apt.
