Thread: HTTP_PROXY with special chars

  1. #1

    Exclamation HTTP_PROXY with special chars

    How could /etc/sysconfig/proxy handle special chars in password ?


    For example - HTTP_PROXY="http://user0001:@part1!part2@proxy.company.com:80"

    Here "@part1!part2" is the password.

    Any help greatly received.

    Considering that looks a lot like a URL have you tried URL encoding the
    value? I'm sure you're vamiliar with the %20 you can get in URLs for
    spaces. '20' is the hex value for a space. So.... looking at my
    handy-dandy ascii table... '21' is hex for '!'. Perhaps try putting %21
    in there instead to see if that helps.

    Good luck.
