Which *can* be set up sanely. Does yours *require* NTLM authentication,
or will it use what Microsoft are pleased to call "basic"
authentication?  (This is under the control of your system
administrators: can you ask yours to add support for basic
authentication?)

Take a look at the messages around
https://lists.dulug.duke.edu/pipermail/yum/2003-June/001357.html
where yum was persuaded to work through a proxy.

Can you get yum to work through that?

I can't remember off-hand exactly what up2adte does require, but yum is
plain HTTP.

Um. If your employers insist on adding that to the end of each e-mail,
maybe they won't change their proxy setup for you.
