Did you search how to set http_proxy for yum?
You could export http_proxy variable once set to a proper value.

yum.conf configuration instead of system wide configuration
Code:
# The proxy server - proxy server:port number
proxy=http://<proxyip>:<proxyport>
# The account details for yum connections. Only needed if your proxy needs authentication.
proxy_username=username@proxy
proxy_password=password

I do not know what reference to "proxy".

I have add the following lines to yum.conf ,but yum did not work.

Quote:
proxy=http://10.162.254.40:80
proxy_username=2543355@ikcp.ikc
proxy_password=xxxxxx
The proxy of firefox was set to , after running firefox, program sent me a input dialog to input username and password, then I can surf internet. But yum stil does not work.
The username is 2543355 , and password is xxxxx
My windows hostname is ikc-2543355 , Network Group name is "ikcp.ikc" .

When I login into windows, my username is "2543355" , and login to "ikcp".

If you do not know it, then most probably you do not need it. I would say remove the authentication lines for username and password. If your proxy settings for firefox are good and working, you should use the same in yum.conf file.

This is what you should use
Code:
proxy=http://10.162.254.40:80
This should be enough for you.

i take it you are using the current fedora ?
see the fedora 13 docs and install guide and the fedora wiki

Thanks, my fedora version is 13 . Firefox can give me a dialog box to input username and passwd, but yum doesnot. I have tried many ways to make my yum work under windows ISA server. But all work failed.

I have tried all the ways above. It is useless. Can you recommend some tools which can work through isa server as second proxy. I have tried ntlmaps, but it useless.

it is not a matter of disttro
yum needs to be configured to use the username and password
and as i recall there is a conf file for that
