    With my box FC5 at work (Active Directory), I have been able to access the net , I have not logged in with my AD account , I logged in as username : root and password : forum,,,fake one (I know security implication, I have done this for test ).

    First time when I tried to open a browser, window popped up asking me username and password for authentication to use internet (I entered my username: zillah and password:ad123 my active directory account,,,fake ), then I was able to browse the net.

    When I tried to use the command below (via Terminal):

    [[email protected]]#yum install yum (yumes),,,,It did not work, I believe because of the authentication (ISA proxy) that I mentioned above.

    With the proxy , I followed the link below :


    1- I added the line below to /etc/yum.conf
    Then I tried to use this :
    [root]#yum update yum,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,I received this error :

    Loading "installation" Plugin
    Settingup Update Process
    Setting up repositories
    Can not find a valid baseurl for repo:case
    Error: Cannot find valid baseurl for repo:core

    2- I removed the configuration above and I tried these:
    [[email protected] # yum update yum
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/bin/yum", line 29, in ?
    File "/usr/share/yum-cli/yummain.py", line 80, in main
