ReHat 7.3 RPM updates

Hey everyone,

Which commands do you use to apply RPM updates from a specific server?

I realise this may be a basic question but i am confused.

"Which commands do you use to apply RPM updates from a specific server?"

I have never done this. I always download a package and then install it as two separate steps. I never use rpm for the download.

According to the rpm man pages you should be able to do it all in one command:
rpm -i ftp://<user>:<password>@hostname:<port>/

Be prepared. Create a LifeBoat CD.
