Default Escaping @ in apt.conf

Hi list!

Is it possible to escape an "@" in apt.conf?

I have a file /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/60proxy with the syntax to use apt
through a proxy:

ACQUIRE {
http:roxy "http://usernameassword@proxy.server.com:3128/"
}

but since my password has an @ in it, aptitude thinks that the server
address starts right after this @. Say this is the real thing:

http:roxy "http://usernameassw@rd@proxy.server.com:3128/"

I get an error saying that it could not resolve the hostname
@rd@proxy.server.com !

Is there a way to escape the @ in the password?

Thanks a lot,
Cassiano Leal

Change your password?


http:roxy "http://usernameassw@rd@proxy.server.com:3128/"

I get an error saying that it could not resolve the hostname
@rd@proxy.server.com !
