How to change proxy information on ubuntu server

New motherboard has come and I ask my friend to install Ubuntu Hardy 8.0.4.3 . Everything is fine except proxy section when I try to apt-get update.

# apt-get update

Err http://security.ubuntu.com hardy-security Release.gpg
Could not resolve ’172.88.1.3;3128′
Err http://security.ubuntu.com hardy-security/main Translation-en_US
Could not resolve ’172.88.1.3;3128′
Err http://security.ubuntu.com hardy-security/restricted Translation-en_US
Could not resolve ’172.88.1.3;3128′
Err http://security.ubuntu.com hardy-security/universe Translation-en_US
Could not resolve ’172.88.1.3;3128′

As you see proxy information is incorrect, there is a ; sign not :

To fix it just declare new proxy info and export it.

# http_proxy=http://172.88.1.3:3128
# export http_proxy

Testing again :

# apt-get update
