Hope I understood everything.
Up2date tells me, that I'm not registered.
Trying to register fails, since rhn_register won't use a proxy.
Up2date could you a proxy.
Is it right, that you broke up2date (in using rhn) for users behind proxies

Can you please try specifying your serverURL in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date as:
And let me know if that works?
No it does not... Squid does not seem to handle the following request:
971196098.518 5 10.0.217.18 NONE/400 1123 POST
/https://www.rhns.redhat.com/XMLRPC - NONE/- -
As a quick try I added
if string.find(self.__handler,"/http") == 0:
self.__handler = string.replace(self.__handler,"/http","http")
to xmlrpclib (line ?) just to discover that all does not work with ssl (POST is
wrong. Should be CONNECT etc.) . If you use both with http it works. But it is
really not nice.
It seems that using ssl and proxy really needs a bit of work.
Assigned QA to jturner
Proxy support for both up2date and rhn_register is currently in the CVS versions
and therefore will be rolled out in the next cut of the software made public.

This is working for me. I ran 'rhn_register --config' and set attribute 2 to
'http:<proxy name>:<proxy port>' and set attribute 1 to 'yes' and that was all
that it took.
I'm now getting 'unable to set up CONNECTION tunnel'. I didn't see any options
as there are on up2date for setting my username and password for the
I would suggest altering the comment for the rhn_register config. attribute 2
that says u must but the 'http://' in.

patch to rhn_register-1.3.2 to support proxy authentication
The above patch allows rhn_register to work through a proxy with
authentication, I've only tested it with authentication on.
this patch will be included in a future errata release of rhn_register.
