Summary0004123: Yum using proxy that requires authentication and a Password that contains the two characters \/ fails
Descriptionnormally 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 server port>
export http_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=http://bob:\/
export http_proxy='http://bob:\/'
export http_proxy="http://bob:\/"
export http_proxy=http://bob:\\\/
TagsNo tags attached.

It'll probably work if you use URL escaping, eg:

%5c and %2f

And if that doesn't work, it should be reported upstream at - if there isn't a report for that already.

URL Escaping does work. So this issue can be closed. Thank you for the assistance
