I am behind Microsoft Proxy Server v2.0. and I can not download the pseudo-image. I use the following set of commands:
make-pseudo-image binary-i386-1.list http://www.uk.debian.org/debian
And in the log file I am getting the following response :(
Connecting to proxyast.gmsi.co.za:80... connected!
HTTP proxy request sent, fetching headers... done.
23:31:42 ERROR 407: Proxy authentication required.
Our network guys are less than useless. Am I doing something wrong? Or something must be done on the proxy?
