I'm trying to use pip behind a proxy at work. I'm not a networking expert so bear with me if this super obvious.
One of the answers from this post suggested using CNTLM. I installed and configured it per this other post, but running
cntlm.exe -c cntlm.ini -I -M http://google.com
Connection to proxy failed, bailing out
pip install -–proxy=user:pass@localhost:3128
Cannot fetch index base URL http://pypi.python.org/simple/
Basically, to use CNTLM in any platform, you need to setup your username and hashed password, before using
http://127.0.0.1:3128 as a proxy to your parent proxy.
Edit the config and add important information like domain, username, password and parent proxy.
Generate hashed password.
cntlm –c cntlm.ini –H
cntlm -v -H -c /etc/cntlm.conf
Remove plain text password from the config and replace them with the generated passwords.
To check if working:
cntlm –M http://www.google.com
sudo cntlm -M http://www.google.com/
For more detailed instructions, see links above.
Just for completeness sake, I was able to configure and use CNTLM in Windows recently. I encountered a problem during the syncing process of Kindle for PC because of our proxy and installing and configuring CNTLM for Windows fixed that issue for me. Refer to my article for more details.
