Re: TLS 1.2 on latest CentOS

The bank is the host server and our system is the client connecting to it. I highly doubt they are running CentOS v6.8, however, our client PC that sends the authorizations to the bank is running it. So, it sounds like I will need to contact our payment application vendor and request they make the a...

TLS 1.2 on latest CentOS

I am running CentOS v6.8. This comes with OpenSSL 1.0.1e. Can someone tell me if this supports TLSv1.2? If it does, how can I tell if it's enabled by default? We have a payment application that uses it for secure connections to the bank for credit card transactions and the bank is requiring TLSv1.2 ...

How to update Firefox once CentOS 5 is EOL

I see that CentOS 5.x will reach end of life on 3/31/17, which means no more updates. I have many systems in the field running CentOS 5 and the main application I need to update is Firefox. I would like to know if there is a way to install the latest version of Firefox once CentOS 5 reaches EOL, and...

How to remove a local CentOS repository

I created my own local CentOS repository for patching local workstations. I didn't use createrepo or anything like that. I simply used rsync and passed it the url of an official CentOS mirror. Everything worked, but now I want to remove it. The local repository is located in /usr/local/etc/repos. Ca...

Securing local CentOS repository

I have setup a local CentOS repository to patch client systems across the country that is hosted by Apache. How can I make the repository read-only for the clients that connect to it, but open for the root user that updates it from a centralized mirror? Let’s say the client user will always be user ...

Re: Help validating integrity of CentOS mirror packages for local repository

Ok, I didn’t use reposync or createrepo to setup my local repository and pull down the updates from a remote mirror. I used rsync and it pulled everything down for me and my clients were able to patch. Is there anything I need to do other than just running the reposync command moving forward? Is the...

Re: Help validating integrity of CentOS mirror packages for local repository

I’m new to this, so please bear with me for a moment… If I enforce a GPGCheck from the clients to my local repository when installing the patches, that’s not going to validate that the patches I pulled down from the mirror to my local repository are valid. Correct? I recently found an article about ...

Help validating integrity of CentOS mirror packages for local repository

I have hundreds of CentOS 6 workstations across the US and decided to create a local repository to patch them. These workstations have limited access to the internet, but can reach the local repository on our network via a secure VPN connection. So far, I have created the local CentOS 6.8 repository...

Re: Help needed setting up local repository

Is there a way to only pull down the latest version from my CentOS mirror? After running the rsync script, it pulled down multiple versions of the same RPM’s and this seems like a waste. I found a nice command to purge all older versions contained in my local repo, but that’s only good after they ha...

Re: Help needed setting up local repository

A couple more questions. My initial intent for this project is to update 600 freshly staged systems with the base CentOS v6.7 operating system to the latest and greatest updates available. This will be a 64 bit install and will be performed from a 16GB thumb drive. Moving forward, I will have the re...
