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 :

http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/yum/sn-yum-proxy-server.html

1- I added the line below to /etc/yum.conf
proxy=http://proxy.ewrq.au:8080,,* ,,,,,,,,,,,,, because our ISA uses 8080 proxy
proxy_username=zillah,,,,,,,,,,,,* ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,fake username
proxy_password=ad123,,,,,,,,,,,,,* ,,,,,,,,,,,,,fake password
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:
http_proxy=" http://zillah:[email protected]:8080 "
export http_proxy
yum update
[[email protected] # yum update yum
