Problems with yum downloads using windows proxy server


Hi guy's,

Wondering if someone can help me. I'm trying to set up a virtual server on vmware with centos to do some testing on a wiki. I'm having a major issue with yum whilst trying to update and setup the xwindow app. I'm behind a windows proxy server, so i've installed ntlmaps and configured it with the proxy settings, and to listen to port 100. I have then set the http_proxy variable to localhost:100, and this gives me access to the internet. I have then set yum up to use the same settings and yum to will now access the internet ok. However randomly through any part of the update/download with yum, I get this error.

Loading "installonlyn" plugin

Has anyone ever had any issues similar to this before? Any help would be much appreciated as I have exhausted all options at the moment.

Cheers
