Hi all,

it may depend how the proxy is configured. A transparent proxy just
intercepts the packets and sends them through the proxy which needs no
action from users but may have certain drawbacks. If the clients must be
configured to use the proxy explicitely and it is set system-wide, at least
wget (I am not sure about LWP) should understand it. If you have to
configure each browser manually, you will have to set the proxy access in
the wget configuration. Anyway, yum also makes use of wget and if you do
not set it properly, "yum install" will fail too.

Another possibility is that the proxy blocks some servers. In such a case
you will have to contact your network admin.
