Our campus employs proxy server with authentication.
So, I have to apply
http://username:password@proxyIp:port/ bash configure file(suppose for wget or curl) or manually entering details for every graphical application (like gtalk), and also if I work with localhost (XAMPP),
I have to configure XAMPP, and so on. If I have my proxy password changed I have to change it everywhere on the system!
Is there a way I can apply proxy settings system-wide at one place.Even though I am asking for Linux, I would like to know it on windows also.
