Dahdi installation on Debian


I’m trying to install dahdi 2.4.0 on my debian 5.0 machine and I’m getting problems with the proxy authentication. I’m always getting the following error:

I have checked the http_proxy variable and it seems to be ok:


In fact I’m able to use Internet, synaptic, atptitude,etc with no problems.

Any suggestions?


You probably need to talk to a local IT person. Possibilities include that the machine isn’t authorised, or the proxy will only accept Microsoft authentication. Full headers on the response might be helpful.
