Question How do I update 1000 RPM's without RHN's Up2Date tool?

Hi - I'm behind a NAT, and I can't get Redhat's Up2Date to work. It doesn't give me the privacy statement which makes me think there's a problem with my computer and communicating with the redhat servers. I've got my own account and password, and can log in on the website, but when I try to update it gives me an error : Problem Registering Username.

If there's anyone out there that would help me know how I can update all my RPM's either by Redhats Up2Date or with some other automatic updater.

Thanks ~

Did you update up2date as per the instructions on redhat's website?

hasn't that service gone down.... isn't redhat more interested in its "enterprizing" software now and suporting it?

no it has not gone away - just have to register/reregister on their site and follow the directions.
Mine works fine thru terminal, type
up2date and it pops up.
I have found it to be great really.
