Description Hugo Cisneiros 2006-01-24 10:34:16 EST
Description of problem:

- As Linux console programs use the environment variables: http_proxy, ftp_proxy
and no_proxy, yum uses the first two, but ignores the no_proxy.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure proxy with the ENVVARS http_proxy, ftp_proxy and no_proxy
2. Configure a local repository that shouldn't use proxy (local, no_proxy var)
3. Try to yum update
Actual results:

yum tries to get the files throught proxy, even if the host is specified in the
no_proxy environment variable.

Expected results:

yum passes direct without proxy in hosts specified in no_proxy environment variable.

Additional info:

links/lynx, wget, perl, and many others programs read the no_proxy.

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

This bug still exists in Fedora 7
Comment 3 Zachary Napora 2008-04-30 00:27:52 EDT
This might be two separate issues, but there clearly is something wrong with
yum(python) following the proxy syntax.
