#414 closed enhancement (fixed)

HTTP Basic proxy authentication for chicken-install(1)

Reported by: iru Owned by: felix
Priority: not urgent at all Milestone: 4.9.0
Component: core tools Version: 4.6.x
Keywords: chicken-install proxy auth Cc:
Estimated difficulty:


I have added support for HTTP proxy authentication to chicken-install(1). The code is attached.

Since Basic authentication needs a base64 string and this egg is not in use in chicken-install, the user needs to configure the proxy_auth environment variable with such encoded string.

As an example of usage, try

# proxy_auth=$(echo -n user:pass | base64) chicken-install egg

a sh-derived unix shell.
