i have a Netbook which is connected to the internet with its wireless card, i have another computer that connect to the Netbook via wired cable (LAN), in order to shre files BTW the computer and still get an internet connection to the bench computer i am using SSH server on hte Netbook, and create a SOCKs (i really don't know that is it exactlly, i just followed up with some tutorial) on the bench and i can get an internet connection on the bench machine via Firefox.
the problem arise when i try to use YUM, as far as i understand it, it does not know about the SOCKs.
the masseges that i got from yum are:
14: PYCURL ERROR 56 - ""
i have tried so far (based on some googleing that i have did):
1. type 'export http_proxy='http://localhost:8080"' (8080 is the port i use to create the Dynamic SSH for the SOCKs) in the bench machine.
2. in yum.conf i have tried to add a 'proxy=...' line.
i have found somthing that i think could help, but i didn't tried it yet:
what are you think, is it something helpful for my problem.
