• Global Proxy settings in Linux/Redhat

    From Dennis McCarthy@21:1/5 to All on Fri Nov 3 09:45:10 2017
    Hi All,

    I'm using a Red Hat 7 desktop environment and wondered if there's anyway to set a global proxy with username and password for authentication (not in clear text!) that can be used by all applications instead of separately listing each proxy, username &
    password in separate file like yum.conf, wgetrc, .gitconf etc.

    I've looked at cntlm and it provides a local proxy and hashed password which is good but I need to pass instructions onto a load of other people and it's not as simple as I would like.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on any other applications I could use or a way to bypass authentication on the proxy (i guess this would need my security team to approve which is doubtful).

    Thanks for any suggestions, links and help.
