Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 188700
no way to specify proxy
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:30 EST
Description of problem:
There seems to be no way to tell pup to go through a proxy. I tried setting
the env var http_proxy and also setting the Network Proxy from the menu. But
still pup does not seem to pick the proxy
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open pup on a m/c which connects to internet through a proxy
pup hangs for sometime and displays an error message that it couldn't connect
pup should display the package information
Can you grab http://people.redhat.com/~katzj/yum-2.6.0-2.noarch.rpm and see if
You may need to set the proxy in /etc/yum.conf also.

I tried with http://people.redhat.com/~katzj/yum-2.6.0-2.noarch.rpm and also
set the proxy in /etc/yum.conf as given in the docs. But still the same problem.
Doing a netstat shows that pirut/pup is directly trying to access redhat.com.
Aha, I see what's going on. Marking a dupe of the main bug I'm going to use for
tracking this so that I don't have to juggle a few of these

Moving component to pirut. Sorry for the spam.
