That sounds like a message from an authenticated proxy where the appropriate
credentials are not getting presented.  Are you attempting to connect through a

Comment 2 GeoffLeach 2001-09-14 19:49:26 UTC
There is no proxy involved on my end.
Connection is through PPP on a slow (26KB) line.  A comment on the Roswell list
suggested that that might be a factor.

Comment 3 Mihai Ibanescu 2001-09-14 19:58:55 UTC
Package retrieval is done via some authentication tokens which expire after one
hour. If up2date does not finish its job in one hour, it needs to
reauthenticate. The up2date client had a bug which is fixed now. Could you
please report what version of up2date you're using? Thanks.

Comment 4 GeoffLeach 2001-09-15 16:24:52 UTC
Version in use is up2date-2.7.0-7.x.1

Comment 5 Aleksey Nogin 2002-07-20 16:49:32 UTC
This bug appears to be back in Limbo (up2date-2.9.13-7.x.9,
up2date-gnome-2.9.13-7.x.9, rhnlib-0.8-7, python-2.2.1-10) - up2date failes to
re-authenticate after timeout, it just reports the error to the user and aborts...

bug id. If someone hasnt opened another bug report yet, I'll open
