Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 165388
up2date + yum + authenticated HTTP proxy is broken
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:19 EST
In an up2date/yum scenario, up2date can't use an authenticated HTTP proxy.
See bug 157070 for the original bug.
Unless theres a specific customer need for this, the changes required
to support it are pretty big and gnarly.
