I am trying to register Rhel 6.5 x86_64 (evaluation) which is installed on a vm within vSphere with a static ip. I can ping any host within and outside the network successfully. But when I am trying to register in command line (as explained here https://access.redhat.com/site/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/5/html/Deployment_Guide/registering-cmd.html) I am getting the error message:
Network error, unable to connect to server.
But when I ping 188.8.131.52 (redhat.com) the ping is working just fine.
I installed the same RHEL Server on my local machine where DHCP is configured and I can register.
