Re: Proxy error upon Red Hat Bugzilla request_new_account

I experience the same problem both from home and from work (two different ISPs). In both cases, the browser is configured not to use a proxy, and furthermore I can access lots of bug web pages hosted on the same web server (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/) that handles the request_new_account form. So I would exclude the possibility of a proxy set up by the ISPs.

The strange thing is that if I pick a password which is too short, or even if the two passwords do not match, the script token.cgi that processes the form generates a Bugzilla web page containing a specific error message, whereas if the form is filled in correctly, that very same script fails with "502 Proxy Error."

Whatever its source is, the problem does not seem a transient one, since it is still occurs now as it did about 16 hours ago.

The last sentence in my previous e-mail should have read "After all, the ability of reporting bugs IS one key aspect of Fedora development."

Is your browser configured to use any kind of proxy? Does your service provider put a proxy between you and the Bugzilla instance? I've seen this problem before in the wild, so I do not think it is specific to this instance of Bugzilla.
