Question yum update error


Hi every body.I already have installed centOs 5.2 on Vmware.It works on a PC and connect to internet via proxy.I want to make rpm packages but it's not possible because RPM-Build package is not installed. So I decided to use yum to download all necessary packages but I got errors.I installed python 2.5 msi on my windows and configured necessary files according to http://richard.gluga.com/2008/10/ntlm-proxies.html
I get this message when i type python main.py:

NTLM authorization Proxy Server v0.9.9.0.1
Copyright (c) 2001-2004 by Dmitry Rozmandov and others.
Now listening at hostname on port 3128

I suspend it and run it in background and run yum update but although i've changed my /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOs-Base.repo I get this error:
Loading "installonlyn"plugin
Setting up repositories
http://repo.elastix.org/centos/5/upd...ta/repomd.xml: [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error nonumeric port: '3128?' >
Trying other mirror.
Error:Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: elastix-beta
What is this error?here is my CentOs-Base.repo:
CentOS-Base.repo
#
# This file uses a new mirrorlist system developed by Lance Davis for CentOS.
# The mirror system uses the connecting IP address of the client and the
# update status of each mirror to pick mirrors that are updated to and
# geographically close to the client. You should use this for CentOS updates
# unless you are manually picking other mirrors.
#
# If the mirrorlist= does not work for you, as a fall back you can try the
# remarked out baseurl= line instead.

Are you sure your proxy is working ? Try connecting a web browser (you can use elinks if you don't have the gui installed)

It could be anything from your proxy server not working to firewall issues.

What do you mean you suspend your proxy and run it in the background?

So you don't really know if you are running a proxy?

Why don't you try yum without any proxy settings?

Because I'm behind a proxy and I should use yum with proxy settings.But I don't know why it didn't work although I carefully set every thing

So you have a DNS problem

What does
Code:
dig proxy.company
give you?
