(not a question)

 

VMTurbo requires access to external repos beyond *.vmturbo.com to perform an online update.

 

from the command line, you can see that the destinations are:

 

http://download.vmturbo.com/appliance/download/vmturbo/repodata/repomd.xml

 

http://download.opensuse.org/update/12.3/repodata/repomd.xml

 

http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/12.3/repo/oss/suse/setup/descr/packages.gz

 

from the gui, you cannot.

 

If your firm blocks access to external repos on the web proxy, like we do, you may spend some time debugging this.

 

If you are using web proxies, create an identity on your Ironports for the vmturbo server, permit external repos and push to the proxies.

 

Creating a direct firewall rule for direct access around any web proxies may be difficult in a secure environment as a full list of external URL dependencies is not available from my research.
