Description of problem:
Line 356 of /usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/up2date.py and subsequent 9 lines. It 
is possible to pass through this small routine with ProxyUser not set to any 
value. I find that setting proxyUser = None just prior to this routine allows 
me to continue.

I believe there should be an else clause in the upper section so that if 
cfg.readEntry("enableProxyAuth": is true and if cfg.readEntry("proxyUser") is 
false, it will set proxyUser to None.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run up2date behind a proxy
2. The proxy doesn't need a username
3. The proxy doesn't need a password

Actual Results:  I got an error traceback saying that proxyUser was undefined.

Expected Results:  up2date should have installed the requested updates.

Additional info:

I have found this bug and fixed it several times in the past and it remains in 
the current version.

Also, proxyPassword is not defaulted, just like proxyUser.
Comment 2 Adrian Likins 2002-04-10 15:04:21 EDT
hmm, true. EnableProxyAuth shouldnt be enabled if a proxyUser 
and proxyPassword isnt set. I didnt think the config tools
would allow that combination. 

Workaround is to disable enableProxyAuth if your not using it.

I'll add the bits in that section to default proxyUser/proxyPasswd
to None in that case.
