Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 220364
Bad satellite URL causes rhn_register to wait forever instead of timing out

Description of problem:
I'm a bit new to RHN, and I ended up running into an interesting case. I put
"http://rhn.webqa.redhat.com" into the Red Hat Network Satellite or Red Hat
Network Proxy box and it just waited forever. Couldn't cancel or anything, only
kill the program.
Other attempts afterward gave me the usual timeout and error message, but that
URL is different. If I blank the field and put in that URL, I always get an
Using RHN on RHEL5 RC candidate snapshot 5. Sorry if I filed it against the
wrong component, I'm still quite new to RHN.
Moving this to someone more appropriate
