Proxy Server

Hello Experts,

I just installed a Fedora with samba which will act as a file server inside a Windows environment.  Now my problem is we are using MS-ISA as proxy and I need to know how to configure my Fedora to access the ISA proxy so that I can download OS patches without doing any config on the ISA.

As always, thank you for your time on this matter.

What exactly do you need here? IS your ISA-PROXY does authetication against Active Directory? Is it ok if you can authenticate to domain ?

Cheers,

The ISA does authenticate to the AD.  I've added the proxy info on the browser and it works but I can't download any patches.  Authenticating to the domain is okay.

Oh  the problem is: Yum does not use the Proxy configuration in browser. For yum to be able to use a proxy you should tell it to yum. It takes you to modify /etc/yum.conf.

Here's how-to do it:
