rhn-applet.  Some of your configuration settings may not work properly.

Clicking on the "Details" button reveals the following details.

Configuration server couldn't be contacted:

Clicking on OK, allows the applet to continue in most cases, although the
task-bar icon is NOT able to started as a result of this error.
