Chip, is this even a bug? Why would someone browse to this page?
Comment 2 Mihai Ibanescu 2002-10-31 17:21:28 EST
They wouldn't normally, but it looks really bad. Additionally, it displays an
SSL mismatch between the host's name and the Common Name.

Chip, can we redirect / to rhn.redhat.com? Or we did this before and we confused
the load balancer?
Comment 3 Todd Warner 2002-12-09 15:18:33 EST
It's been a couple months... status?
Comment 4 Cristian Gafton 2003-02-18 19:54:34 EST
That is by design. We need to have a real page there for the CSS to work
correctly. We can not redirect. No normal website traffic should be done on
xmlrpc.rhn.redhat.com - if you point a browser to it you get to keep all the
broken bits.

Comment 5 Chip Turner 2003-02-18 21:32:18 EST
if you hit it now, you get a simple page that says 'Red Hat Network' -- at
least, that's what I get.  can anyone confirm the problem is 'fixed' (not
blatantly wrong) anymore?
