Steps for register with RHN


Once we get a subscription (activation key), how to register a RHEL machine with RHN?

Which port to be open on my RHEL machine? How exactly it will connect to Red Hat Network?

Please give me some steps.

Thanks Mark.

I have gone through those links and I have already activated the Key on RHN website.

I want to know the configurations required on my Linux machine to connect with Red Hat Network.

I am able to access the Internet from my Linux machine. Tried running the command rhn_register but got a Fatal error: We can’t contact Red Hat Network server. Double check the location provided –is ‘’ correct? If not, you can correct it and try again.
Tried updating the file /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date with serverURL, proxyPassword, ProxyUser parameters which I used for my internet connection on Linux machine. But still I am getting the same error.

Please help me.
