I have an SLES11 SP3 that used to work great and it still wirks great but I have trouble updating it and installing new products.
It is registered and when I do an online update it comes back with:
Error message: Unknown SSL protocol error in connection to nu.novell.com:443
I hit retry and it works, atleast after trying 2-4 times.
Then it comes back with:
Timeout Excceded when accessing 'https://nu.novell.com/repo/$RCE/SLES11-SP3-Updates/sle-11-x86_64/glibc-i18ndata-2.11.3-17.68.1.x86_64.rpm?credentials=NCCredentials'
Hit retry again and it works after 2 tries, same error again.
Then I come to retrieving kernel-defaults and it times out after 60% or 5% and really quick.
the timeout is almost instant, would have expected it to take at least 1 sec.

And so on.

Where should I start to investigate this? I clearly have a connection but cant go on patching like this.
