Updated rhnlib packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 Extended Update Support.
The rhnlib packages contain Python libraries developed specifically for interfacing with the Red Hat Network (RHN).
- The RHN Proxy did not work properly if separated from a parent by a slow enough network. Consequently, users who attempted to download larger repodata files and RPMs experienced timeouts. This update changes both RHN Proxy and Red Hat Enterprise Linux RHN Client to allow all communications to obey a configured timeout value for connections.
Users of rhnlib are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
