I have been trying all day but so far I am unable to configure yum to use a proxy server to retrieve updates.Due a recent compliance mandate direct internet access had to be removed for a pool of our Cent/RHEL servers. I have added the http_proxy environment variable in /etc/profile using:
I am using the FQDN of the proxy server, and i can ping that FQDN from the CLI without a problem. When I do this and I reboot the server I can get to the internet through the proxy using links/lynx. Yum however stalls out after loading plugins. I have read in a few places that I need a trailing / after the port number above, adding this and rebooting has no effect.
So I tried specifying the yum.conf file... [URL]. When I do this yum still tries to contact the redhat/cent network directly. No behavior change. If I use tcpdump I can see the server I am running yum on try to directly connect without the proxy, which times out for good reason.
The proxy server I am running is squid, but I can see the server I am running yum on blatantly ignore any proxy settings I have tried so far. I am really in a hole on this one as I have to get several updates to fix vulnerabilities found during our last scan.
is possible to edited the default RHEL CD to have it automatically install RHEL based off of a kickstart file that I will store locally on the CD. My plan would be to put a cd in a server and have the OS automatically being installed.
I am trying to set up my squid3 proxy as a transparent proxy - right now, I have to manually configure browsers to access via proxy. I understand that I have to put some rules into Iptables and also some further directives in the squid.conf.
I have a couple of specific questions. The proxy server is running on a Ubuntu 10.04 workstation and this machine also acts as a dhcp server for the network. I have just one subnet , namely 192.168.0.1-254 There is only 1 network card. Is it much easier to put in a second network card or is it just as easy to configure the existing lan card as a dual IP?
Is it necessary to configure these 2 IP's ( whether they are via 2 lan cards or dual IP on single card ) to be on different subnets. i.e ETH0 192.168.0.1 and ETH1 192.168.1.1 or is ok to have something like ETH0 192.168.0.1 and ETH1 192.168.0.254 ( where ETH0 is the one facing the LAN and ETH1 points to the modem router / switch i.e The Internet ) Where specifically do I save the Iptables rule configuration file and what must I call it ?
I cannot ssh into an RHEL 5.5 server (192.168.20.104) from another RHEL 5.5 server (192.168.20.101) unless server debug is turned on 192.168.20.104, and even then, I have to wait several minutes before the connection is established. scp to and from the 104 server is also not working.Here is the debug output on the 101 server when server debug is not enabled on the 104 server-:
I have a database server running RHEL 5.1 32 bit that suffered some catastrophic failures about 6 months ago. We were able to patch it back together and keep it running, but now the manufacturing site it supports is going to shut down for two weeks and I would like to replace it permenantly. Does anyone have any guidance for that sort of thing? I'd like to have the new server up and running before hand, basically changing the hostname/ip and restoring the databases only on conversion day. I've done this in the past with HP UX - Red Hat conversions, but this is my first red hat to red hat move. Any advice or shortcuts?I forgot to add the other wrinkle. The new server will be running 64bit linux.

I have been tasked with taking over the new RHEL 5.6 server our company installed. Currently we have a network printer, for general purposes let's say it's called printer1 with ip address of 188.8.131.52.I want to add this printer to the RHEL server, do I simply run:lpadmin -p printer1 184.108.40.206
I have deployed proxy server in my office about a month ago. I have about 7-8 client accessing it through port 3128. After some days of deployment, my server started creating problems. Some clients were not able to access proxy while other clients were accessing it. The error message which I found in cache.log was:
Code: WARNING: Closing client 192.168.2.99 connection due to lifetime timeout
In this way it was disconnecting clients randomly. The problem resolves when I restart proxy server
Im sending my cache.log file
Code: Last login: Mon Nov 15 12:37:29 2010 from 192.168.2.2 [root@localhost ~]# cat /var/log/squid/cache.log 2010/11/15 08:11:49| storeDirWriteCleanLogs: Starting... 2010/11/15 08:11:49| Finished. Wrote 57740 entries.
If you leave your hotmail account signed in on a proxy server, can others access that account by just typing in [url] in their browsers? ie does the proxy server share all connections to the same site with logins?
