RE: up2date from behind microsoft firewall



Normally on a linux box I would install the APS098 NTLM python program.
I also tried the using the browser without the APS098 NTLM
By using manual proxy setting, giving specifying proxy server and p[ort
number and use authentication.

But I am still stuck
I tried the suggestion below on a gentoo linux box without success
So I is unlikely to work with red hat will give it a go a bit later
today
When the dust settles

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.
