Description Paolo Campegiani 2009-09-18 09:39:25 UTC
Description of problem:

I have a local proxy to reach out to Internet. Firefox is configured to use "localhost" as proxy and it works; also "ping localhost" ping the local machine.
Neverthless, if I set "localhost" as the proxy for Liferea, all feeds are dead and I have a proxy authorization error message: switching to and all works fine. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

1. Configure a local proxy (cntlm would suffice)
2. Configure (Tools|Preferences|Proxy) localhost as proxy
3. Update all feeds
Actual results:

All feeds dead showing a red sign.

Expected results:

Using localhost as proxy.

Additional info:

Using as proxy works.

do you have localhost defined in your /etc/resolv.conf  ?

Comment 2 Paolo Campegiani 2009-09-27 08:18:00 UTC
I guess you mean /etc/hosts, which contains: localhost localhost.localdomain etc...

Also, Firefox understands "localhost" as a proxy, and "ping" works with it as a target.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.

Comment 6 Matt Domsch 2010-08-24 15:16:55 UTC
As mentioned above, there is a package review for cntlm now.

Comment 7 Bug Zapper 2010-11-04 09:56:42 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '12'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 12's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 12 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 8 Bug Zapper 2010-12-05 06:22:11 UTC
Fedora 12 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-12-02. Fedora 12 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
