Description Ben Liblit 2001-02-14 08:29:45 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.1 i586)

The server for beta updates is refusing both HTTP and HTTPS connections,
which in turn disables "up2date".

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
As root, run "up2date -r".

Actual Results:  Observed diagnostic ouput:

    There was a fatal error communicating with the server.  The message
    Connection refused

Expected Results:  Anonymous registration with Red Hat Network

Manual telnet'ing confirms that host [] is
refusing connections on ports 80 (http) and 443 (https).
