It took some time to get to it, but I've
tested setup.exe using an NTLM authenticating
proxy @work today and it does exactly what it
is supposed to do (pop up

asking for the user name and password, then authenticate

So your problem
still seems to be some misconfiguration on the proxy
side that causes communication with setup.exe

You can call it "misconfiguration." I can call it
"different" configuration than setup assumes.
The point remains: other programs, like wget,
consistently work OK, without popups, when given
proxy username and password in either .bashrc
or .wgetrc, and I am sure they were not customized
for this proxy.
Maybe a comparison of how wget handles
authentication versus how setup handles it

Err… could it be that your
proxy isn't actually of functioning as an FTP
proxy? How about using a HTTP mirror
= = =
No. Wget works OK with either type. HTTP mirror
has been tried with setup, and also does not work.
From previous post, setup fails to retrieve mirrors.lst,
with an HTTP, before failing to retrieve setup.ini.
Again, wget can retrieve these consistently OK
when given username and password.
Cached mirror list unavailable
