Smile How to run autoupdate in SuSE 9.0

Hi all
I am using SuSE 9.0. Recently, I found that my system is a bit out-of-date and I want to update some security patches. In the past (when i was using Redhat 9), I just run up2date and let the system do all the rest. What program in SuSE does have the same function as up2date of RH9 ???

I tried running YAST2, then choose online update, but the system response was "Unable to connect to the server" even though I double-checked the URL (the URL is correct since I can visit it thru mozilla). The network card works fine since I can do all the Internet access. I just have this response when running the online update function in YAST2 menu ??

Does anyone face this problem ? Pls share me ur experience. Tks a lot.

I ran into a problem with the first mirror about 2 weeks in. Start YOU, then select
Germany: Univeristy Kaiserslautern (http) as the installation source. That one works
for me.
