Description garrison 1999-10-13 20:54:43 UTC
Our company is behind a firewall, we can access the web
via HTTP proxy or socks5 proxy, but neither seem to work
w/ up2date.

Comment 1 richard_tango-lowy 1999-11-04 22:06:59 UTC
I have this problem as well. There's no place to set a proxy/port, and
up2date doesn't seem to like runsocks. (It hangs while attempting to
get the package list).

I have the same problem ( owr computers are connected via ftp,http proxy)

Comment 3 Paul Jochum 2000-01-07 04:17:59 UTC
I also have the same problem, in that our corporate intranet uses a proxy to
access the rest of the internet.

Comment 4 dvanhorn 2000-01-10 17:00:59 UTC
Same here, I can select any package, all give the same result, that the rpm
package does not exist on the server.

Mine is behind a w98se machine running connection sharing.

support for http proxies will be included with the Update Agent in Red Hat Linux
