Premature save there!

We run Satellite 6 behind a proxy server. If the proxy servers are not configure then Content -> Red Hat Repositories and trying to view a repository set (to enable a repo) does not give a visual clue (the wheel just continually spins whilst trying to open the list) that RHN cannot be contacted.

Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2014-07-24 21:43:46 UTC
Since this issue was entered in Red Hat Bugzilla, the release flag has been
set to ? to ensure that it is properly evaluated for this release.

Comment 8 Chris Duryee 2018-03-27 20:25:09 UTC
I tested this on 6.2.14:

test #1: edit /etc/hosts to point cdn.redhat.com to

result: got ssl error (correct)

test #2: block outbound traffic to cdn.redhat.com's IP via iptables

result: got timeout error after a few minutes (correct)

marking closed/currentrelease
