How do I access RHN (yum/up2date/satellite-sync) through a firewall?

https://access.redhat.com/site/solutions/11214

 

  • For up2dateyumrhn_register, and satellite-sync to work correctly, your firewall must allow connections to:

    • rhn.redhat.com on port 80 (http)
    • rhn.redhat.com on port 443 (https)
    • xmlrpc.rhn.redhat.com on port 80 (http)
    • xmlrpc.rhn.redhat.com on port 443 (https)
    • content-xmlrpc.rhn.redhat.com on port 80 (http)
    • content-xmlrpc.rhn.redhat.com on port 443 (https)
    • content-web.rhn.redhat.com on port 80 (http)
    • content-web.rhn.redhat.com on port 443 (https)
    • cdn.redhat.com on port 80 (http)
    • cdn.redhat.com on port 443 (http)
  • RHN Satellite needs additional access to:

    • satellite.rhn.redhat.com on port 443 (https)
    • satellite.rhn.redhat.com on port 80 (http)
    • content-satellite.rhn.redhat.com on port 80 (http)
    • content-satellite.rhn.redhat.com on port 443 (https)
  • IP addresses for servers are not permanent. Please use the domain names instead ; this is partly because we distribute them through Akamai

  • It's necessary to allow the following ports/hostnames on firewall to have fully working yum

    • .akamaiedge.net on port 443 [https]
  • If you can't open your network and use RHN classic you can disable location aware updates as a workaround. This will not work with RHSM.

  • For systems using RHSM, please see Configuring my firewall to access RHSM.
