Description Deon Ballard 2013-10-18 21:50:40 EDT
As covered in bug 721230, there are some customer issues related to location aware updates. The CDN cycles through different IP addresses, depending onthe geographical location of a system, all resolving to the hostname cdn.redhat.com. Some environments have firewall rules that block downloads.

The list of IP addresses should be in the RHSM docs for reference so that people can set the appropriate firewall rules.

       The  subscription-manager  tool uses outgoing HTTPS requests. In the default configuration it will use HTTPS on port 443 to the subscription servers subscription.rhn.redhat.com and  to  the  content  delivery  service cdn.redhat.com.

       For information about the network addresses that subscription-manager and the subscription-manager yum plug‐in use see https://access.redhat.com/site/articles/414963

To the subscription-manager man page.

commit c14c1553b46decfa7da6c2925f63d33e4f33d776
Author: Adrian Likins <alikins@redhat.com>
Date:   Tue Feb 25 13:34:50 2014 -0500

    1021069: Add reference to network usage info.
    Document the default server names and network ports
    used in the man page, and include a reference to the
    knowledge base article that documents the IP addresses
    and netblocks of the servers.
Comment 5 Deon Ballard 2014-02-26 13:25:49 EST
Adrian addressed this in the man page, but there should be either a part in the docs or a kbase with this information, as well. Changing back to assigned.
Comment 8 John Sefler 2014-03-06 10:21:39 EST
VERIFIED:  The subscription-manager man page addition in comment 2 is present in subscription-manager-1.10.14-4.el7

Thanks Deon!
