Re: Web urls cannot be accessed from Bash Terminal

There was no network problem, I could access this url through my web
browser.
It was instead a yum configuration problem.
There wasn't any proxy information in the yum.conf file.
I had to add the parameters: proxy, proxy_username and proxy_password.
It started working then.
Please don't close any issue in such a haste next time.
Programmers all over the world rely on your help.
I'm a programmer myself but fairly new to linux.
I went through some of the yum faqs but couldn't find anything useful.
I got the solution to my problem on linux.duke.edu

Thanks,
~Pratiksha
