Did you know…

…that you can configure yum to use a proxy?

A proxy can be specified globally to yum in /etc/yum.conf, or you can specify a proxy for each repository in /etc/yum.repos.d/ .

If you want to disable the global proxy setting for a specific repository, use ‘proxy=_none_’ in your repository file in /etc/yum.repos.d/ . ┬áIf no proxy is specified, it will inherit the global proxy setting.
