The certificate used by up2date and rhn_register to communicate with the 
Red Hat Network reached its end of life on August 28th 2003. Users 
attempting to connect to Red Hat Network will see SSL connection or 
certificate verification failures.

For each distribution supported by Red Hat, you will find the latest 
versions of the RHN client software and instructions on how to perform an
update listed at this page:  


If you prefer to update just the client certificates, you can follow the
instructions from this web page:


Further information is available by following the links from the 
RHN homepage, available at:


Thank you for using RHN,
