apt-get Proxy Issue

Testing out Security Onion and apt-get update was failing.  The server is behind a proxy.

Added proxy settings to all the regular places :

/etc/environment    
export http_proxy=http://proxy.domain:port
/etc/apt/apt.conf    
aquire::http::proxy "http://proxy.domain:port/"; 
/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/80proxy    
aquire::http::proxy "http://proxy.domain:port/";

None of which worked.  In the end the command :

http_proxy='http://proxy.domain:port/' apt-get update
and because I always forget how to do this :

#!/bin/bash
http_proxy='http://proxy.eu.rtdom.net:8080/' $1 $2 $3
