SuSE 9.1 YOU through proxy

Hey ppl,

I am on the net through a proxy connection and I can access the internet fine but I can't use the YOU (YaST Online Update) tool. I definitely need to use it for security updates etc. I've seen that you can manually download updates on the SuSE site but theres hundreds of them, it's so much better with YOU. I'm running 9.1 Pro; is there a config file I've been missing to allow proxy access? My firewall is disabled as well. If I can't use YOU is there a command through shell I can use or a different program to download the updates?? Thanks for any help Linux lovers.

/etc/wgetrc about 3/4 of the way down "set default proxies for wget" . enter your proxy info similar to the examples.
