To make sure all your networking software uses the above proxy server, you need to add a file to /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/ and put the details into it. Here's how you do it:
 +
 +
  ~> cd /etc/apt/apt.conf.d
 +
  ~> sudo nano proxy
 +
 +
You'll be asked to enter your VM password at this point, before nano starts.
 +
 +
In this new file (proxy), type the following:
 +
 +
  Acquire::http::Proxy "http://'''USERNAME''':'''PASSWORD'''@proxy.vmsrv.redbrick.dcu.ie:3128";
 +
 +
Where USERNAME and PASSWORD are your RedBrick username and password (not your VM ones). Hit Ctrl-x, then "y" to save the details.
 +
 +
And that's it. Simples.
