RHN - Network error 111: Connection refused

Hi guys - trying to setup RedHat network and getting the above error message any ideas?

I'm using a http proxy - do I need any other special ports proxied?

you should be able to open a terminal and type in

up2date --proxy=http://proxy:port

if your proxy requires you to log on (if your not sure, try the above and if it doesnt work, then it does)

up2date --proxy=http://proxy:port --proxyUser=username --proxyPassword=password
