Description V V Raja Rao 2006-04-12 08:10:37 EDT
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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open pup on a m/c which connects to internet through a proxy
Actual results:
pup hangs for sometime and displays an error message that it couldn't connect

Expected results:
pup should display the package information

Can you grab http://people.redhat.com/~katzj/yum-2.6.0-2.noarch.rpm and see if
it helps?

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.
