Accessing external resources

Proxy services are provided for CCI systems that do not have direct access to the internet and provides access to some external websites.

This is provided for build systems and package managers that expect access to online repositories to build software (where otherwise manually collecting the sources would be tedious).

To enable proxy access, set the following environment variables:

export http_proxy=http://proxy:8888
export https_proxy=$http_proxy

This will work with many common command line tools such as wget and curl along with other tools that work on top of them like git or conda.

NOTE: If accessing git, HTTPS access is preferred. SSH will not work via CCI proxy services.

If two-factor authentication is required, create and use a token instead of a password.
