The Nokia N900 doesn’t feature support for proxy configuration through the GUI interface. However due to the Open Operating System – Maemo5 which is based on Debian it is possible to interact with it the way we do with Linux on our desktops.
Do the following:
- Open Xterm
$ export http_proxy=http://username:password@proxyip:port/Example:
$ export http_proxy=http://sam:firstname.lastname@example.org:8080/
- Open your application from the same command line or try to connect from GUI
- The changes to the environment variable http_proxy is not persistent. You will need to follow step 2 after each reboot. To make the change persistent add it to your default shell variables.
