Description of problem:
When ever I run up2date I get an error message that it fails to connect to
the server. "PROXY ERROR"
I have tried turning off my firewall and get the same message. My system
is connected directly..
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Are you behind a proxy server? If so you need to configure
the proxy settings for rhn_register and up2date.
Using the "--configure" option will allow you to
set these settings up.
It is also possible that you are behind a transparent
proxy. Some ISP's set this up so that all http traffic
gets redirected through a web proxy. However, the client
should be able to handle this properly. What version
of the up2date client are you seeing this error message
rpm -q up2date
will show you the version of the client. version 2.5.4 and
up should be able to handle transparent proxies correctly.
closing, no response. As far as I know,
all proxy related issues with supported releases
are cleared up.
