    I am trying to setup the Linux Spam Filter Gateway using the tools as specified on the site. I am having a problem getting yum to update and getting perl to obtain the necessary perl modules that it needs from within the proxy. Does anyone have any experience with MS Proxy 2.0 as far as how to allow the fedora to gain access to the web? Do I need to add the hostname or IP address of the machine to the proxy settings somewhere? Thanks!

    Do you get any error or status messages on your Fedora and on the proxy system?

    MS Proxy 2.0 and Fedora Core

    Yes. If there is no proxy statement, as per the fedora core site, the response I get when I perform "yum install updates is":

    Loading "installonlyn" plugin
    Setting up Install Process
    Setting up repositories
    Could not retrieve mirrorlist
    error was
    [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (-2, 'Name or service not known')>
    Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: updates

    Any idea's?

    yum and MS Proxy

    Thanks. The fedoraforums info is outdated due to Yum not working with NTLM authentication so I am looking at the other site which has a server that might work. I will keep you posted.
