Yum to access through Proxy Server

In some network where you have to enter the IP Address of the proxy server to access the internet and you are not able to use the yum command to update your system. You normally put the Proxy Server IP and Ports in your browser setting, but in Linux box that doesnot solve the problem. You need to edit the file /etc/yum.conf, and make a new entry in the bottom of the file as below:

proxy=http://<Proxy Address>:<proxy port>

Now run the yum command and you will see its now working.
