PTS behind a company firewall
I started testing PTS some days ago and this morning I tried PTS 1.8 on a system with Fedora 10. Currently I'm doing "install-all" and I notice a few problems:
1. PTS seems to use wget and curl to do the downloading. So if I'm forced to use a proxy to connect to the internet I need to setup the environment variables and adjust the config files like wgetrc. This should be documented in the install instructions.
2. I'm suffering from a very restrictive policy of my employer regarding the access to "not work related sites", that means that some of the software that PTS is trying to download and install is resulting in HTTP response codese 401 and 403 and the download is blocked. Is there a sort of "installation report" at the end that lists unsuccessful packages and maybe how important they are for the overall PTS functionality?
Thanks for your attention.
