Description of problem:
clock-applet doesn't use proxy in F14 (worked fine in F13) for getting temperature/weather information
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
- Set Network Proxy in System --> Preferences --> Network Proxy
- Block port 80 outgoing traffic and check the firewall log
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Tag 'Show weather' and/or 'Show temperature' in the clock-applet preferences
2. Set network proxy
3. Watch how it ignores the proxy
From machine 'netstat -pan':
tcp 0 1 192.168.1.58:59737 188.8.131.52:80 SYN_SENT 2610/clock-applet
(184.108.40.206 is weather.noaa.gov)
From firewall log on router:
Nov 14 16:30:11 router kernel: [337792.268392] IPTABLES RULE 21 -- DENY IN=eth1 OUT=eth0 SRC=192.168.1.58 DST=220.127.116.11 LEN=60 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=63 ID=20681 DF PROTO=TCP SPT=59737 DPT=80 WINDOW=5840 RES=0x00 SYN URGP=0
clock-applet uses proxy (this is an entry from the Squid log from before the upgrade of the machine):
1289595761.941 314 192.168.1.58 TCP_MISS/200 7064 GET http://weather.noaa.gov/mgetmetar.php? - DIRECT/18.104.22.168 text/html
A rotten workaround I'm using is, to
mv clock-applet clock-applet.real
Create a script named clock-applet in this directory containing.
Where wwwproxy is my proxy server. Then chmod 755 clock-applet
Nice if it was fixed.
Seeing this too. Looks like the problem is with package libgweather. HTTP is handled by libsoup. That has hooks for proxy lookup etc. but they appear not to be used/implemented in libgweather.
Also found other bugs that may be duplicates:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=636962 (Weather Report applet ignores autoconfigured network proxy)
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=660247 (gnome weather doesn't work with proxy)
Not a big problem, but a security vs. functionality issue for me.
Fixed for me (privoxy on host a.b.c.d:8118, network proxy: Automatic, no URL, WPAD handling in DHCP and DNS, pac file via httpd)...
$ sudo yum list 'libproxy*'
$ sudo yum install libproxy-gnome libproxy-mozjs libproxy-bin
$ export _MM_DEBUG=DEBUG
$ export _PX_DEBUG=DEBUG
$ proxy http://some.extenal.net
Config is: wpad://
Trying to find the PAC using WPAD...
WPAD search via: 24dns_alias_wpad_extension
Using pacrunner: 25mozjs_pacrunner_extension
Pacrunner returned: PROXY a.b.c.d:8118
No more firewall holes!

This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached 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, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
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:
