On a Linux box (at work) I have to logon to the internet through a proxy that requires user name and password.
After having put these in the client_state.xml file I still cannot get through since when starting the boinc client it always adds a / to the URL.

I can traceroute setiboinc.berkeley.edu but I cannot traceroute setiboinc.berkeley.edu/ or even http://setiboinc.berkeley.edu and I have no idea what I can do about that.

Anybody who has more experience with Linux, please heeeelp out this n00b :-)
