proxy.cfg - urpmi proxy configuration file format.


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


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):


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:


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