    Bob,

    This solution may or may not work for you depending on what you want to do,
    but it may give you some other ideas. I do something like this because I
    have servers that don't ever connect to the internet and they have to
    updated as well.

    I have up2date configured to save the rpms after the install, I do an
    up2date -u via a cronjob, which works just fine. I then have the job move
    the newly installed rpms into a repository that is then transferred into my
    interior nework. I then have jobs that update my interior hosts, and I
    never lift a finger. You might get some use out of that and you might not
    or as they say "your mileage may vary...".

    Regards,

    Drew

    The question is how to automatically get RPMs for RHEL, from RedHat, without
    using the up2date utility.
