    While logged in as root, run this command from the terminal:

    export HTTP_PROXY=”http://192.168.0.1:8080″

    Where http://192.168.0.1:8080 is the location and port of your proxy.

    If you can browse after doing that, stick it in your /root/.bashrc or /root/.bash_profile file.

    Why would you want to surf as root? Not necessarily the most secure thing to do. Best to access the internet as an unprivileged user on your PC
