Message I believe I have installed the server and client
in accordance with the documentation I found
in current.

The server is redhat 7.2
the client is Redhat 8.0
current-1.4.3-1.7x
apache-1.3.27-1.7.2
python-xmlrpc-1.5.1-7.x.3
python-popt-0.8.8-7.x.2
python-devel-1.5.2-43.72
mod_python-2.7.8-1
rpm-python-4.0.4-7x
python-1.5.2-43.72
mod_ssl-2.8.12-2


On the client I encounter the following message
when I run up2date.

# Error communicating with server. The message was:
Internal Server Error

The only log I found were in /var/log/httpd/err_log

Anyone have any idea what is happening.


I have several questions in addition.

1) Does the server name need to be the real name
    of the server (so reverse name lookup works)
    or can it be a CNAME?

2) Since it is documented that apache cannot be running
    when you run cadmin, I would recommend the notice
    be moved to the beginning of the documentation.
    Also, why can't you run cadmin when apache is running?
    (it might even be a good idea for the software to fail
    if apache is running and notify you to stop apache before
    running it).

3) Do you know what ports the server needs to have open,
    we have most of our ports turned off and it refused
    to connect until I opened all ports to the particular
    client.

4)
Thanks,

paulw
