initial version

Fedora, Gnome, network proxy (all users)

I have created a Vagrant box image containing Fedora 18 to be used inside our corporate environment. When new users grab and boot their new image, we do lots of automation like, creating their user accounts and synchronising framework tools on their VM filesystem.

We want to also set the network proxy settings automatically, and so far I have only discovered the GUI mechanism (Applications > System Tools > System Settings > Network > Network proxy).

We use the Automatic method with a Configuration URL pointing to an HTTP hosted pac file. This works well enough when set manually, but I would like to add this configuration step to the automatic image bootstrap script.

Is there a command line mechanism or configuration file I can edit which will populate this system setting?
