Description gnazio 2008-07-03 00:25:29 UTC
Description of problem: Hello, on my laptop I have Fedora8 (still got no time to upgrade). I use it both at home and at work, where there is an ISA proxy server. It's not much pratical for me to edit yum.conf to comment/uncomment the proxy configuration so I prefer to source a script that exports (http)|(ftp)_proxy for me (with username and password). This approach always worked, but today the proxy is responding with error 407 trying to run yum update. Wget is working as expected after exporting http_proxy.

I've tried again today and it's working. No changes has been done since yesterday, so I can't explain the reason. So it seems that this bug report could be closed.
