To set a proxy in the Kali Linux terminal, you can follow these steps:

  1. Open a terminal window by clicking on the terminal icon on the taskbar or by using the shortcut Ctrl+Alt+T.
  2. Type the following command and press Enter to open the apt.conf file in the nano text editor: sudo nano /etc/apt/apt.conf
  3. In the nano text editor, add the following lines to set the proxy: Acquire::http::proxy "http://username:password@proxy-server:port/"; Acquire::https::proxy "https://username:password@proxy-server:port/"; Replace "username" and "password" with your proxy authentication credentials, and "proxy-server:port" with the address and port of your proxy server.
  4. Press Ctrl+X to exit nano, and when prompted to save, press Y and then Enter.
  5. To apply the proxy settings system-wide, you can edit the environment variables by typing the following command in the terminal: sudo nano /etc/environment
  6. In the nano text editor, add the following lines: http_proxy="http://username:password@proxy-server:port/" https_proxy="https://username:password@proxy-server:port/" ftp_proxy="ftp://username:password@proxy-server:port/" no_proxy="localhost,127.0.0.1" Again, replace "username," "password," and "proxy-server:port" with your actual proxy details.
  7. Press Ctrl+X to exit nano, and when prompted to save, press Y and then Enter.
  8. Restart your computer or log out and log back in for the changes to take effect.


Now, the proxy will be set for your Kali Linux system, allowing you to use it for various applications and commands in the terminal.
