From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)
Description of problem:
The weather applet in the panel looses connection to the weather
server after the system (laptop) is moved from one private netowrk,
say 192.168.2.0/24, (bhind a NAT firewall) to another private subnet,
say 10.100.0.0/24 (behind another firewall). All other components
retain full network connectivity on both networks. The applet works
on both networks when located on the network that it was connected to
when first started (ie, it will work when first started in either
location, and it will resume working when brought back to the original
location after having been elsewhere).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
weather report 2.4.1 (gnome-applets-2.4.1-1)
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Log in and make sure you have the applet in the panel.
2.Disconnect from your network
3. Connect to a different network and try to update the weather report
Actual Results: Reports "Retrieval failed" in step 3 above
Expected Results: Should report weather conditions
Do you still see this problem with Fedora Core 2?
I still get this problem in Fedora Core 2 (with updates). It seems to
be related to this upstream bug, which has been open since March 2002!
Okay, seems to be a gnome-vfs bug - moving there, but closing as
The fix is in gnome-vfs 2.7.90 and, as such, will appear soon in FC3.
