My system is running Fedora 16 and I live in a campus where we use LAN to connect to the Internet. And for this, we use an http proxy with authentication (username & password).
I tried putting the
proxyaddress:port in the Network Proxy settings after going to the Network Settings window. However, it never asked for an authentication and the programs that use the internet are unable connect, except for Firefox because it asks for authentication.
Also, I could get Yum to work by manually editing
yum.conf. I even tried using
http://username:password@proxy:port like in the Yum configuration but it has not helped.
Is there any solution to this problem?
