I run Debian Woody on my laptop (the host) and my UML. Everything works
great. I've got webmin and apache installed and am now trying to get
MRTG and snmp working.
While at a LUG meeting I had problems using apt-get in my UML. The
location we meet at has an http proxy. To tell apt about the proxy I
typed: export http_proxy="http://10.200.28.10:8080";. This works on the
host but for some reason it doesn't work in the UML.
I thought this was a routing problem but after typing in the proxy I was
able to do host lookups on the net. Everything but apt-get would work
If anyone knows why I can't get apt-get to work in this setting let me
know. Our LUG meets every Friday and it would be nice if I could use

Look at the firewalling on the host. In general, you track down problems
like this by running tcpdump on every interface between the UML and the
destination and see where they disappear. Then you look at the routing,
firewalling, etc on the box that owns that interface.
