Description of problem:
When using UpToDate I set the proxy server address:port but the
program is not using the proxy server to dowmload the updates and is
clogging my ISDN link instead of coming down the satellite link.
When I set the proxy the Red Ball with ! changes to Blue Ball with
tick and sometimes Green Ball with top and bottom horizontal swoosh.
Network proxy is set correctlt, Mozilla proxy is set correctly. Both
Network and Mozilla retain the set Proxy sttings.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Right click red ball next to clock
3.Enable HTTP proxy 10.0.0.0:0011
4.Red ball turns Green
5.Green Ball turns Red after 2 minutes
Expected Results: Proxy should remain set

The proxy setting needs to be set in two places. The Red Hat Network Alert
Notification tool has a proxy setting. The up2date tool also has a proxy
setting. I'm guessing you need to run "up2date --configure" and set your proxy
I'm closing this as it is not a security issue.
