Debilitating NTLM proxy

It is interesting to note how a corporate NTLM proxy can cause untold misery.

The saviour in this case is cntlm but I had to set it up in the following ways.


admin@LINUX:~/graphite/graphite-web-0.9.9/webapp/graphite$ env | grep "proxy"


export http_proxy=
export https_proxy=
export ftp_proxy=

After all this I had to set it up again for a ruby gem installation.

sudo gem install fpm --http-proxy=

Sometimes I had to watch the verbose output from cntlm to be sure that I am not
being fooled by a wrong setup.
