What are you looking to connect through the proxy?? Just your web browser?

the entire machine..... tried running the windows executable of the server using wine .... didnt work.

In your browser, set the proxy manually. If you are using Iceweasel (a modified version of firefox), then it should be as simple as going into settings and looking for proxy settings and then just typing it in.

When running commands in the terminal, if you want them run through a proxy, use proxychains. You can read more about that here --> proxychains

Btw, I don't think the .exe would work anyway because I am sure it is to configure a Windows machine.

Take a look at the HTTPPROXY environment variable.

Meh, there should be an underscore between http and proxy.

The same applied to the asterisks and brackets.
