Hi and thanks for taking the time to look at this with me.

New OES SLES, SP1 server, trying to run YaST's Online Update, and getting
a 403 error (y2.log below). If I manually run "curl --user
myuserid:PassWord -O 'https://you.novell.com/update/i386/update/SUSE-
CORE/9/rpm/i586/file-4.09-3.2.i586.rpm'" it works fine and I can retrieve
the rpm, but I'm not getting anywhere with YaST.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Bill
