How to change proxy IP address

How to change proxy IP address

How to change proxy IP address

Can anyone tell me how I change the proxy ip address on a zen partition without using the boot cd or disks and typing config?


RE: How to change proxy IP address

OK, I figured out that you can edit the settings.txt on the zen partition, it lives in the bin directory.  Pico looks to be the editor to use but its causing me some problems.  (I'm not a linux person by the way).  

How exactly do I save the modified file using pico.  I did a search on the web and apparently ctrl+x will exit and give me the chance to save the file but all that happens is at the top of the editor it says MODIFIED and I cant figure out how to exit pico from there.

RE: How to change proxy IP address

Sorted, ctrl+k and then ctrl+x seemed to save and exit ok

RE: How to change proxy IP address

Changing settings.txt does not affect PXE boots. To do that you have to edit the linux.2 file and edit the settings.txt which is embedded there. There is a cool solutions article on doing just this. search the novell site. (this is assuming you're on Zen 4 or 6.x)

RE: How to change proxy IP address

Its not a pxe boot, we have the linux partition on the PC, thats why I needed to change it.
