Greeting Linux Gurus out there
Everytime I try to run up2date agent it generates an error "Fatal error : Connection Timed Out"

I have downloaded and installed the up2date and up2date-gnome rpms from RHNetwork. I have also installed the cert file to no avail. The workstation is behind a firewall but port 443 is open.

After installing the up2date rpms the systems generated the following confirmation.

Preparing... ############################ [100%]
1:up2date ############################ [ 50%]
2:up2date ############################ [100%]

I am still unable to use the up2date agent. It keeps timing out.

The workstation has no problem connecting over SSL port 443

[root@agent007 root]# telnet xmlrpc.rhn.redhat.com 443
Trying 209.132.177.100...
Connected to xmlrpc.rhn.redhat.com.
Escape character is '^]'

I used the instructions in this thread to download the new-cert.sh again using the URL; however, I get the error below

[root@agent007 root]# wget -q -O https://rhn.redhat.com/help/new-cert.sh l/bin/bash
https://rhn.redhat.com/help/new-cert.sh: No such file or directory

I used the instruction in another thread to reinstall the rpms using the command below, I'm not sure what it did by lack of any error or confirmation.
[root@agent007 root]# rpm -Fvh up2date-*.rpm
[root@agent007 root]#

What am I doing wrong or what step am I ignoring to get the up2date agent to work ?

I'm totally new to Linux but I would love to start using Linux instead of Windows.

Any help from you guys will be greatly appreciated and enormously beneficial to us Linux newbies.

In the last few days, this critial message has shown up in the Red Hat Network Alert Notification Tool:

Critical Information (tab)
The applet has been unable to access the following information sources in its last attempts: RHN @ https://xmlrpc.rhn.redhat.com/APPLET

Please help me debug this. I assume this message means something is not working?

Thanks...

problems fixed?

I would like to thank hkb133 (post # 207). That suggestion seem to work for me. The up2date doesn't throw any glibc error now.

Aamer - As a newbie myself, the startup can be frustrating....

UP2DATE doesn't cost you to use, but a faster update that is easier to use in my opinion is 'YUM UPDATE' for Fedora Core - not sure if it would work on other distros.

If you are a new user, here is how to do it:
(1) Click/open a terminal and at '$' enter su - ' (that is su plus the -), and then enter your Root password.
(2) when the '#' appears enter 'YUM UPDATE" and follow the instructions.

This will download the updates for all repositories you have listed in your 'repos.d' file for the packages installed.

Good luck

Bob

Unhappy Can't telnet to port 443 (can't get up2date to work)

Running RHEL 3

First, I have enabled 443 httpd on all my servers trying to use up2date. I have verified that port 443 is open by doing nmap -p 443 "hostname" and the port is open.

However, I am behind a firewall and if I try to telnet xmlrpc.rhn.redhat.com 443 I cannot connect.
But if I try to telnet to another server on that port then I can connect to servers within our private network.

My network admin said that that command is not allowed to the internet because the telnet command bypasses our proxy. Furthermore, I cannot even ping xmlrpc.rhn.redhat.com or 209.132.177.100 (which I can resolve on my end). Does anyone know if xmlrpc.rhn.redhat.com or 209.132.177.100 respond to pings? That would help me alot because if they don't respond to pings then I will know that may not be a problem.

My network admin said that port 443 or https is open but it just cannot be tested using the telnet command. I can browse to the actual website https://xmlrpc.rhn.redhat.com/XMLRPC but I get the error http 405 - resource not allowed. I can then browse to https://xmlrpc.rhn.redhat.com and I just get some text that says Red Hat Network.

I have also tried to use up2date and connect by using http instead of https, which I have read you should be able to do. However, I have no success that way either.

So, what else can I try, do you think this is network related? Any suggestions would be great!
Thanks, this is my first post here.

I do not think the xmlrpc.rhn.redhat.com responds to pings:

Code:
[jhibbets@tavarua tmp]$ ping xmlrpc.rhn.redhat.com         [  OK  ]
PING xmlrpc.rhn.redhat.com (209.132.177.100) 56(84) bytes of data.
 
--- xmlrpc.rhn.redhat.com ping statistics ---
7 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 5998ms
 
[jhibbets@tavarua tmp]$ telnet xmlrpc.rhn.redhat.com 443
Trying 209.132.177.100...
Connected to xmlrpc.rhn.redhat.com.
Escape character is '^]'.
^]
 
telnet> quit
Connection closed.
I think what you need to try next is to look into using the proxy settings that are included with the up2date module. That may be your best bet. I'll see if I can find anything else to try.

What else can you tell us about the network set-up? What kind of firewall or proxy does your connection need to go through?

i am experiencing a problem. i tried to install RHL - 9 on my Compaq Presario PC and got a msg "No Hard Drives detected". However Windows is running on my PC and when i tried to install Ubuntu-Linux for Human Beings, it detected the presence of the hard drive and showed the existing partitions.

I tried to find the HDD driver thru windows but got nothing matching with the manually loadable drivers in RHL that r listed during installation.

the hard disk in my PC is a SATA one and its number is WDC- followed by some numbers.

plz,can anyone bail me out from this predicament?

Dear prakashdeep.m,

Hope you will be fine.
You r most probably trying to install Linux9 on a Intel-Based P4 processor.

You should go in the setup and in advanced configuration or some thing related to this and change the first item from ENHANCED to LAGACY save the changes and try to install again.

This time Linux9 will detect ur HDD.

Looking Forward.

up2date screwed me

Yea, so I had some problems with a server setup (bad files or something) so I reinstall RH9 fresh. Get it all set up, everything works fine for weeks. Light bulb pops in my head..."Oh yea, forgot to do some updates". I run the rhn up2date. Get the SSL error, fix it. Run it again, do an update of everything except the kernel. Now I've got problems. X programs are loading slowing (like mozilla pops up as "Starting Mozilla" and then disappears 15 secs later, just to ACTUALLY open 5 MINUTES later.) and my internet won't work.
My network is configured and I can activate and deactivate my eth0 to have it assigned an IP from DCHP. All my services restart fine. But I try and access the outside world and I get NOTHING. HTTP is running, sendmail is running, ssh is running....but I can't access them from another pc on or off the network. But I can access them thru localhost.
So it seems there's something wrong with my ethernet? Ruling out network card problems, what should I look into?

Thanks a mil.
Travis

UP2DATE with RedHat

Hi All,

I am new to Linux.

Would you PLS let me know whether UP2DATE is a free service for anyone or it is a service for customers who had paid for RedHat Linux or it is a service on-time billing.

Also let me know, In case of billing what is the required amount, I have to pay for UP2DATE with RedHat.

Thanks.

I tried to removed RPM files from /etc/spool/up2date and to copy again the RPMs from the RedHat's iso, but it still the same message.
Thank you for your help...
