npm ERR! network getaddrinfo ENOTFOUND

I am getting

npm ERR! network getaddrinfo ENOTFOUND
error while trying to install any package using NPM. I know there are numerous threads on the same issue but I could not find any thread which can help me.

I have set the proxy & I think its something to do with proxy not being set correctly\not using the correct url.

npm config set proxy http://proxy.company.com:8080
npm config set https-proxy http://proxy.company.com:8080


Is there any way to check the URL I am using while setting proxy is correct? Are there any steps I need to take in order rectify this issue?

enter image description here

Answer

I was setting proxy as

npm config set http_proxy=http://address:8080

instead of using the correct way

npm config set proxy http://address:8080
