I'm trying to use Porteus on my university computers. surprisingly I can easily boot Porteus 3.1 Xfce (I'd have thought they would have locked access to the BIOS), so that is no problem. I'm having problems getting access to the internet. the solution might be here: https://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php?f=81&t=2915
but could someone help me doing this? how do I access this autostart file? I think I know the IP, but I don't know the port (that's the 3128 part in the quote, right?). there's also an additional quirk: my university's network has subdomains, so that university employees have a username in a certain subdomain (like uni-name/username) and students have it in another (academia/username). I don't know how to incorporate that into the command, but I'll try different ways as soon as I know the port!fanthom wrote:please add export http_proxy="http://username:firstname.lastname@example.org:3128" to your desktop autostart file
more info: my university computers are 64-bit windows 7 Dell computers, mostly. I'm trying to use their wired connection, as the wifi does not seem to work out of the box on Porteus (and also because it's unnecessary to have the wifi if I can use the wired connection).
