Http proxy settings

Even after resetting the proxy setting sometimes there are some hidden  files where the old values can stay behind.
I list some common places to look --

  1. System -> Preferences -> Network proxy.
  2. Open terminal.

    $ echo $HTTP_PROXY

    If it still shows the old value reset it by the command

    $ set HTTP_PROXY=""
    $ export .bashrc

    Do the similar thing for other shells csh etc.
  3. The settings for KDE ~/.kde/share/config/kioslaverc

    $ cat ~/.kde/share/config/kioslaverc

    If it still shows the old value in httpProxy then edit it. Do not forget to change the value of PersistentProxyConnection.
