Using Fedora behind a proxy


Ok so have had a look around cannot find any simply answers...

I have fedora 3 install (minimal as I plan to install WEBMIN)

How do I tell it to use the netowrk proxy server (squid) to download the package and install it.....

I have tried export http_proxy=XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:3128
and that hasn't worked... Any thoughts ??

What do you need to download and who do you intend to download it?

Assuming you use yum for updates, add the following line to /etc/yum.conf just after the gpgcheck line:

proxy=http://your_proxy_urlort
