Description Mike Fry 2002-01-17 16:49:23 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:0.9.5) Gecko/20011015

Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.rhn_register - ensuring that hw and/or sw profiles are selected

Actual Results:  RHN server drops connection due to numerous delays and
retransmissions of packets.

Expected Results:  Database should include my hw/sw profiles and the task should
have completed successfully.

Additional info:

I have a tcpdump trace showing the packet activity produced during one attempt
to run rhn_register

Same problem also manifests itself with the 'up2date -p' command (update profiles).

Running a plain 'up2date' also exhibits some the same problems, but the data exchanges are smaller and are thus more likely to succeed - albeit with 
numerous packet retries.

I have discovered a VERY temporary work-around for this problem!


  sysctl -w net.ipv4.ip_no_pmtu_disc=1

seems to allow my system to register and update profiles - albeit sloooowly.

Comment 4 Cristian Gafton 2002-04-20 07:43:47 UTC
are you connecting from behind a modem or through a firewall/vpn? This looks
awfully close o an MTU size mismatch (ie, using an MTU that is higher than what
the connection path allows)

Comment 5 Jay Turner 2002-05-15 18:41:35 UTC
Closing this out due to lack of activity.
