It had been a pain in the wrong place for a while at work where my desktop is behind a ISA proxy with authentication and I could not figure a way to get the proxy settings to work on a Ubuntu (Hardy Heron).

Then I googled and came across CNTLM which is a beauty; follow the instructions to install and configure it, set proxy to localhost:3128 and thats it.

I am doing a Synaptic update as I type this .. from now on I will be on top of the latest ubuntu and like software updates.

3 cheers to CNTLM.

I am well fed with these !!
