Up2date is timing out with up2date A socket error occurred: (110, 'Connection timed o


up2date A socket error occurred: (110, 'Connection timed out'), attempt #5

is what's displayed in var/log/up2date
the screen goes blue after I type in the following:
up2date --configure
(choose option 7, package skip list, then C to clear the list)
(press enter to save)
rpm --import /usr/share/rhn/RPM-GPG-KEY
up2date --update

The screen is blue and a URL (which I can't recall) which i believe ends in foo and displays several times and finally succumbs to a timeout message.

This is my first installation of RHE 3 AS. I have installed the 64 bit eS version and up2date works from that on the same subnet.

I wreak of newb...please help!

Welcome to LQ, sorry you chose to double post on your 1st try.

Please read the rules & please don't do that.

This is duplicate of:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...es-out-589536/

I am reporting both to the mods.

One of the bad things that happen when you double post is that you are likely to get answers like this that don't don't answer your original Q, yet remove you from the "0-reply threads" list.

Sorry

When I got 40 views and 0 responses and it rolled off the front page I assumed that nobody was able to answer or it was in the wrong location.

I didn't realize that, while nobody is able to answer this question, there was someone with nothing better to do than monitor the queues for duplicate entries. lol...

I will refrain from asking a question in 2 places. What was the name of this forum? Maybe you could report to the mods about renaming it to "Linuxquestion.org" ;-)

firewall problem? Does the box have iptables configured to permit you to connect to the RHN server(s)?
Code:
iptables -L
?

2 things:

1st, LQ membership is spread around the world, so it may take 24 or even 48 hours to get a good answer. Be patient. There is at least 1 member that answers posts starting w/ "URGENT" (something you're not guilty of) w/ a link to Google.

2nd, if you think you're not getting an answer because you chose the wrong forum, then report your own post asking that it be moved. This is prescribed way of getting it in the right place.

Hope someone who knows about up2date sees this & gives you an answer.

proxy settings?

another suggestion:
if you are behind proxy,
check this two settings first.

# up2date-config
3. enableProxy Yes
11. httpProxy myproxy.example.com:8080

dono.della.nebbia,
  1. I do not understand your answer, please elaborate.
  2. Why resurrect such an old thread?
