I can set a proxy in browser and access internet. But I want a system wide proxy, such that every request that generates from my machine (
Ubuntu 14.04 LTS) should pass through that proxy.
If we set browser proxy, the requests generated from that particular browser will only pass through proxy but the requests generated from other source won't pass through proxy (For example, doing a
ping to some some url).
I found few old questions which were related to modifying some config files in ubuntu, but I seriously they don't give any pointers to my question. How to set proxy in such a way that every (even the smallest) request pass through proxy and then touches internet ? TIA.
