We have a web app installed in Apache-Tomcat 6.0.18.  Apache is installed on Red Hat AS4 u8 server.

The web app has the capability to connect to data on the internet using a http URL.  The problem is the server is behind our firewall and cannot directly access the internet.  The server can reach the internet via the proxy server.  

How do I configure the server so outbound http traffic goes through the proxy server.

Set the http_proxy variable and export it.

Try these two commands:
http_proxy=http://urltoyourproxy:port
export http_proxy

Set the environmental variable HTTP_PROXY in your profile to your proxy:
export HTTP_PROXY=http://host:port
If it requires authentication you can use export HTTP_PROXY="http://username:password@host:port"
