Yum using proxy that requires authentication and a Password that
contains the two characters \/ fails
normally I can get yum to work with a proxy that requires authentication
when required by doing something like
http_proxy=http://<my username>:<my password>@<proxy server>:<proxy
or by filling in the appropriate information in yum.conf.
But if the password contains the characters \/ this does not work.
I have tried quoting the password in various ways none seem to work
export http_proxy=\/alid at proxy.example.com:80
export http_proxy='\/alid at proxy.example.com:80'
export http_proxy="\/alid at proxy.example.com:80"
export http_proxy=\\\/alid at proxy.example.com:80
Anyone have any ideas for a work around to this that doesn't involve
changing the password or modifying the proxy config ?
I have tried reporting this as http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=4123
but mantisbt presents the information I submitted in a way I didn't
expect. If anyone can tell me how to modify the bug report to look the
way I expected please let me know.
