Yum behind proxy server
I write this to try and save people such as myslef the hours of trying to get yum to work behind a proxy. This is the exact format of my /etc/yum.conf file that got the yum to connect behind the uni proxy server.
# PUT YOUR REPOS HERE OR IN separate files named file.repo
# in /etc/yum.repos.d
The / at the end of the http_proxy is very important as i found out after 30 mins of mucking about. This might not be the most elegant solution, but it works.
You must also as root type: http_proxy=proxyaddress:port
Note the lack of / when exporting the proxy, very important
