ION proxy login problem

a few days ago ION (WiFi provider in Manipal University) started an ISA based proxy using NTLM authentication, which was explained to me as a client install!!! some people are facing a lot of problems with it, their browsers are asking for authentication (login) again and again, and repositories are not working on Linux.

So here is a simple screencast with solution for this problem it works great in Linux (esp. Fedora) i have also included configuring yum here, if someone wants to use apt-get (debian/ubuntu) they can do

 export http_proxy=http://127.0.0.1:5865

Ok coming to the main point, go and download http://sourceforge.net/projects/ntlmaps/ and then watch the video here

People on windows can install python from here and then follow the steps ION proxy problem solved

Note:- If You face any problem please post back here….

PS:- every thing in Text form coming soon… (i am lazy)
