How to setup yum to work under a proxy server.


Hey guys i have installed Fedora core 10 in my SUN Virtual box in my Vista unit at work. Our internet is connected under a proxy server. Im able to access the net in my F10 via NAT setting in the SUN Virtual Box but i cant get yum to work i have tried following the instruction in this link: http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_boo...xy-server.html but unfortunately i only know the url of our proxy server and nobody knows the port number. is there a way to solve this?

How's the proxy configured within windows? Via a .pac file from
a URL? Download the pac (e.g. using wget) and look up the name
and port there. Have a look at your Internet Exploder settings.



Cheers,
