Description Norbert Roma 2004-01-16 11:06:29 EST
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, (bhind a NAT firewall) to another private subnet,
say (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)

How reproducible:

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?
Comment 2 Alex Lancaster 2004-07-29 07:31:27 EDT
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!

Comment 3 Mark McLoughlin 2004-08-04 04:33:16 EDT
Okay, seems to be a gnome-vfs bug - moving there, but closing as
resolved UPSTREAM.
Comment 4 Mark McLoughlin 2004-08-04 04:35:37 EDT
The fix is in gnome-vfs 2.7.90 and, as such, will appear soon in FC3.
