I'm in a network using a proxy. I've got machines using lots of scripts here and there accessing each other over HTTP.

  • The network is
  • My proxy is, so I set it up accordingly:

    export http_proxy=
  • I want to exclude my own range to be accessed with the proxy. I tried any combination available.

    export no_proxy='10.*'
    export no_proxy='10.*.*.*'
    export no_proxy=''

None of the above work!

I'm testing with wget and it always tries to query the proxy, whatever IP address I want to connect to.

  • Since lots of scripts lie everywhere in all systems the --no-proxy option is actually not an option. I want to set it system wide.
