Upgrading LogonBox via an authenticated proxy server

Christopher Dakin

LogonBox does not currently support authenticated proxy servers for outbound access.

However, if you want to update the service via such a proxy, this article shows how this can be achieved from a shell.


From a shell or SSH session do:

nano /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/proxy.conf


Put 2 lines in like this, adjusting to your needs:

Acquire::http::Proxy "http://username:password@host:port";
Acquire::https::Proxy "https://username:password@host:port";


e.g Acquire::http::Proxy "http://proxy:proxy@";

Save the file with CTRL-X, Y

then try: apt update


This should then make the connection via the proxy and authenticate to that server.
