You might have faced to download gigabytes of repositories with Hg. In my case, a big portion of Mozilla repositories depends on it and wanted to download that huge repos from the university network. University bandwidths are mostly underused 😉
Hg uses hgrc file to load configurations. (Per repository) You can go to your repository, .hg/hgrc and add following with your configurations.
[http_proxy] host = your.proxy.host:8000 passwd = password user = username
In case you are using hg from a preloaded instance to clone repositories to another location, you can simply add your configurations as a prefix to your command.
[code]hg –config http_proxy.host=[proxy_ip]:[proxy_port] –config http_proxy.user=[username] –config http_proxy.passwd=[password] push[/code]
Make sure if you have special characters(@,%,\,.) in your username or password you use the suitable character representation for it. ie : use %40 instead of @ symbol. This will also help in finding special character representation.
