My home system has the same problem, I configured out the proxy at home, an
option not available at work, and up2date worked.

Sorry, this is happening on limbo. (I choose poorly)
Comment 2 Adrian Likins 2002-07-22 21:53:21 EDT
this should be fixed from versions about 2.9.15 an on
Comment 3 Michael Schwendt 2002-07-22 22:11:48 EDT
Yep, this is duplicate of bug #68437.

2.9.15 may fix it, but proxy still doesn't work. See bug #69337 which is about
the combined up2date/rhnreg application.
