Description of problem:
The kde proxy configuration doesn't include authentication data, so, when
acessing a port through an authenticated proxy, one must supply the password
over-and-over. The save password option works only in one konqueror session.

KnewsTicker doesn't use proxy data, and blocks behind an authenticated proxy,

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Configure an authenticated proxy in your kde/konqueror
2.Try to access, for example, http://google.com  
3.Supply your proxy login and configuration
4.Logout konqueror and go to one

Actual Results:  The browser konqueror keeps asking for a password.

Expected Results:  I would expect that we can configure proxy access through the
common to all kde applications. The kde applications should use
this configuration by default. 
Any network aware application using a proxy should allow you to change the login
if it failed and optinally store it to other applications.

Please retry with current version of Fedora Core. Unless you followup on this

for your time.

Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still
running Red Hat Linux, you are strongly advised to upgrade to a
current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable.
Some information on which option may be right for you is available at

Closing as CANTFIX.
