Bug#57001: boot-floppies: Retrieving the Base system via HTTP conenction through a proxy does not work
Using the potato boot floppies of 20000127, I tried to retrieve the base system via
a "network connection".
As far as I understand this is supposed to make a HTTP connection,
optionnaly through a proxy server.
I left the proposed URL unchanged and just added our Squid proxy server name
and port in the appropriate fields.
Unfortunately, a message saying that the "www.us.debian.org" name cannot be
resolved was then displayed.
On the other hand, retrieving the base system on an internal server here
(without going through the proxy) worked flawlessly.
Hope this helps the bootf-...floppies packages developers
