Description Enrico Scholz 2007-05-05 08:18:09 EDT
Description of problem:

Although koji uses HTTP protocol it ignores proxy settings and connects
directly to the target host. This makes it unusable in most environments
behind a firewall.

| $ set | grep proxy
| http_proxy=http://www-cache:3128/
| https_proxy=http://www-cache:3128/
| $ strace koji list-api
| connect(3, {sa_family=AF_INET, sin_port=htons(80), sin_addr=inet_addr("")}, 16 <unfinished ...>

Using HTTP(S) as transport protocol is the base idea behind XML-RPC. Therefore: yes

plague-client++ (which uses libcurl) makes perfect use of proxies for the old
Comment 3 Jesse Keating 2007-06-12 15:34:30 EDT
