Android

They say that nothing in life is free – not even the free stuff. This is why certain entities require paid solutions that give them on-demand access to compute, exchange, and store data and information. These paid services have become a part of people’s daily lives and have kept evolving over the last few years.

Consumer electronics – personal computers, tablet devices, HDTVs – name it; there are tons of paid services made available to make these gadgets more useful and enjoyable. Mobile phones, especially, have become a lucrative outlet for solutions providers to deliver their services. The hundreds of smartphone apps hosted solutions providers is enough evidence to prove that even the mobile phone industry has been affected by this boom.

Don’t ask us, how to install this App on android phone :-D

Today I was installing Android SDK on Linux behind authentication proxy server. I tried different settings but there was no way to put user,password in proxy settings. In the end finally I found a workaround to install Squid Proxy on my LinuxMint 11 (Ubuntu based distro) and set proxy to local and it worked enormous!

wget http://http.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/d/db/libdb5.1_5.1.25-11_amd64.deb
wget http://http.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/d/db/libdb5.1-dev_5.1.25-11_amd64.deb
wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/s/squid-langpack/squid-langpack_20110214-1_all.deb
wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/s/squid/squid-common_2.7.STABLE9-4ubuntu2_all.deb
wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/s/squid/squid_2.7.STABLE9-4ubuntu2_amd64.deb
dpkg -i libdb5.1_5.1.25-11_amd64.deb  libdb5.1-dev_5.1.25-11_amd64.deb squid-langpack_20110214-1_all.deb squid-common_2.7.STABLE9-4ubuntu2_all.deb squid_2.7.STABLE9-4ubuntu2_amd64.deb

vi /etc/squid/squid.conf

search for ‘cache_peer and  put following around there

cache_peer 192.168.0.100 parent 8080 0 no-query default login=username:password
never_direct allow all

Make a note of following :

Real Proxy Server = 192.168.0.100
8080 = proxy server port
Username = Your authentication proxy user name.
Password = Your Password for proxy.

And restart squid
service squid stop
service squid start

Now define following in your application it will work like a charm;

Proxy Server IP : 127.0.0.1
Port : 3128

Hope that works same for you.
