What error messages are you getting exactly?

Fatal error retrieving welcome message:

Comment 3 Jay Turner 2001-09-04 15:03:53 UTC
What version of rhn_register is this?

Comment 4 mike cudmore 2001-09-04 15:10:46 UTC
1.3.2-1

Comment 5 Jay Turner 2001-09-04 15:46:31 UTC
Try it without the 'http://' on the proxy declaration.  I think that's the problem.

Comment 6 mike cudmore 2001-09-05 08:11:46 UTC
Thanks.

Now I get 

	Host not found

The file is ........

Comment 7 Adrian Likins 2001-11-01 23:45:24 UTC
the config engine for the next version of rhn_register is going
to be more robust about the format of the proxy name. 

This has been fixed in the 7.2 version, and should be available
for 7.1 shortly.
