Description Bryan Kearney 2012-03-26 17:36:18 UTC
if the user specifies a proxy with the protocol, such as this:


in the gui, then the next time the window is opened you will see:


Expected results. 

If the protocol is not necessary, then the gui, cli, and conf file should accept it and ignore it correctly.

checking proxy

Tested with:



1) Opened up subscription-manager-gui
2) System > Configure Proxy
3) Check "I would like to connect via HTTP proxy
4) enter in "http://blah.redhat.com:123"
5) close proxy
6) System > Configure Proxy

The "http://" was dropped/ignored and it did not double stack the port number or munge the hostname in any way.
