yum update problems.


Hello,

I am having update problems with yum in Fedora 10.. I installed fedora 10 I somehow fixed network manager netmask problem and now i can browse.. I can download things through wget. Now when I try to update my system using yum it gives me the following error.

Code:
[root@wazirkutz ~]# yum clean all
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
Cleaning up Everything
[root@wazirkutz ~]# yum update -y
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=fedora-10&arch=x86_64 error was
[Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (111, 'Connection refused')>
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: fedora. Please verify its path and try again
I am behind a proxy and my yum.conf is as following.

Code:
[root@wazirkutz ~]# cat /etc/yum.conf 
[main]
cachedir=/var/cache/yum
keepcache=0
debuglevel=2
logfile=/var/log/yum.log
exactarch=1
obsoletes=1
gpgcheck=1
plugins=1
installonly_limit=3
proxy=http://192.168.xxx.xxx

I made it..!!

the last line in /etc/yum.conf was

http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xx

I modified to

Code:
http_proxy=http//xx.xx.xx.xx
ftp_proxy=http//xx.xx.xx.xx



and now it's working....


Cheers!!
