Hi,

Add lines similar to

proxy=http://proxy_iproxy_port
proxy_username=username
proxy_password=password


in the /etc/yum.conf file.

Read the man page for more details

man 5 yum.conf

Regards,

Tshimanga.

Fedora 12 has reached end of life. So there will be no files available to update with.
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/End_of_life

To test whether the files still exist and are accessable try accessing part of the URLs that don't work in yum, i.e.

http://download.fedoraproject.org/pu...dates/12/i386/
If you can access that URL then your proxy is not a problem.

If the repodata has been removed then yum won't work. You could still download the files manually.

As it happens when I follow that link, I can see the files, but fedora uses mirrors so your mirror may not be functional.

If in case proxy is a problem a better solution (i think) would be to use proxychains. Its free for download and use.
