NAME

proxy.cfg - urpmi proxy configuration file format.  

DESCRIPTION

You can override default proxy using proxy.cfg (see the syntax below). You can also set proxy on urpmi commands command-line using "--proxy".

Note that urpmi will use system global proxy settings (cf environment variable "http_proxy" or "ftp_proxy"). If you don't want urpmi to use any proxy, you can use "http_proxy=" or "ftp_proxy=".  

SYNTAX The proxy.cfg file contains lines of the form

    [media:]http_proxy=[value]
    [media:]ftp_proxy=[value]
    [media:]proxy_user=[value]

where the media part is optional (in this case, the line applies to all media). ftp_proxy and http_proxy values have the same syntax as the usual environment variables used by many programs such as curl(1):

    [protocol://]<host>[:port]

"proxy_user" values are simply a user name, or a user name and a password separated by a colon (":").

Alternatively, instead of "proxy_user", you can write:

    [media:]proxy_user_ask

In this case, urpmi and other tools will prompt for proxy credentials (like with the urpmi command-line option --proxy-user=ask).
