Finally up2date works with proxies !!!
But to enter it, please give a hint about the format. There are many ways
around on the Internet
to indicate it ("http://proxy.domain.org:1080" or "proxy.domain.org:1080"
or or "proxy.domain.org 1080" or two fields or only 1 and not port
definable, etc.)

Furthermore, if you enter  "http://proxy.domain.org:1080" up2date will
crash saying the port number is non-numeric (of course the 1st colon is
aftert http and the remaining is not very numeric)

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enter a proxy with the http:// prefix

Actual Results:  crash.

Expected Results:  Nothing, storing the proxy info with the correct port

- add a label in the GUI-form of up2date-config to hint the user  what
format to use
- fill the proxy enter field with the prefix "http://" so the user can
complete it
- tolerate the http:// prefix in the search of the port number in the
python code.

Even better, all of the above :-)

We have added a hint label to the version of up2date currently in testing.  Will
enter a feature request to ignore "http:" if it is there.

Comment 2 Preston Brown 2001-04-13 14:34:05 UTC
the latest internal versions of our up2date, and the one to be released today 
as errata, contain a hint as to the format of the proxy. (hostname:port).
