yum.conf configuration instead of system wide configuration
# The proxy server - proxy server:port number
# The account details for yum connections. Only needed if your proxy needs authentication.
, 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.
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.
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
