Hi Wes:

It seems like rhn_register isn't able to make a proper connection to our

Comment 3 Wes Paxton 2008-07-24 10:15:11 EDT
We are not behind a firewall, but we are behind something called websense -- I 
found a workaround which you have to be on the virtual terminal login to 
rhn.redhat.com with my windows credentials and then i am able to register the 
machine. You may close this.
