rug problem


Hello,

i have some problems with the rug update.
The command rug sa https://update.novell.com/data don't work. I get the
error
"Unable to download serviceinfo".
It looks like a problem of the https connection. A command like
rug sa http://go-mono.com/download worked.
Our network is through firewall and proxy connected with the internet.
When I connect to the novell site with a browser, i have to input a
user and a password, but i don't have this account info's.
Can anybody help me?

Best regard's

Torsten

You need to set proxy information for rcd to use. Open Red Carpet and
select Edit > Preferences. You can then enable the proxy use and provide
the parameters. You can also manually enter the parameters into
/etc/ximian/rcd.conf.

Add the following to the bottom:

[Network]
proxy=https://proxyurl
proxy-user=username
proxy-password=password

Save the file and do a rcrcd restart to have the changes take effect.
