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
indefinite wait.

Using RHN on RHEL5 RC candidate snapshot 5. Sorry if I filed it against the
wrong component, I'm still quite new to RHN.

The RHN Satellite 4.x and RHN Proxy 4.x products have reached their end of
life. Please see:

Satellite 4 EOL Errata
 - https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011-0001.html

RHN Proxy 4 EOL Errata
 - https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011-0002.html

This bugzilla was reported for an unspecified version of the product, but was created prior to the release of 5.x - as such we assume this bug was reported for the 4.x version of the product - which is no longer supported.

reviewed again since it is valid for a currently supported product version,
