Description Steve Bonneville 2003-01-27 17:10:43 UTC
Description of problem:

When trying to use rhn_register to register an Advanced Server client through
a RHN Proxy Server, can not use SSL because rhn_register is too old and no
errata is available.  Non-SSL connections from the client to the Proxy Server work.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Tested with rhn_register-2.7.9-7.x.2 and the rhn-proxy-1.1-62 ISO for AS.
Documentation with the rhn-proxy-1.1-62 ISO specifies that I need to have at
least rhn_register-2.7.11-? on the clients for this to work (RHN-proxy-IC.pdf
guide, page 44), but the errata package doesn't seem to be available for AS2.1.
The rhns-ca-cert-1.0-1.noarch.rpm built by my proxy server is installed on the
client.  Both proxy server and client used AS2.1.

How reproducible: Always.  :)

It looks like the sslCACert directive in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/rhn_register is not
honored by this version of rhn_register.    Tethereal output is attached,
station3 is the Proxy Server and station4 is the client.

Connection through the proxy server does not work with these settings in the
client's /etc/sysconfig/rhn/rhn_register file:


but it does work with:
