An updated curl package that fixes a bug is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
cURL is a tool for getting files from FTP, HTTP, Gopher, Telnet, and DICT servers, using any of the supported protocols. It is designed to work without user interaction or any kind of interactivity, and offers many useful capabilities such as proxy support, user authentication, FTP upload, HTTP post, and file transfer resume.
This update fixes the following bug:
* Previously, an attempt to send an LDAP request through an HTTP proxy tunnel ended up with cURL trying to connect to the LDAP server directly using a wrong port number. With this update, the underlying source code has been modified to address this issue, and cURL now works as expected. (BZ#670523
All users of curl are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves this issue.
