All of a sudden the Software Updater on my FC7 box tells me that it can't get updates, because there's no internet connection. That's not the reason since I can browse the web just fine, and the Samba server is working fine. I thought it could be a configuration change on my router, but I don't see it. I am not sure what port the Software Updater wants to use.

I Googled around, and searched these forums and tried a few things, but none have helped (or hurt). What now?

Thanks,

Bill

Fedora 7 has long ago reached 'end of life' and is not being maintained for updates. We're testing F12 beta now, so an update to F10 or F11 would be best for you.

you will need to do a fresh install with fedora 11
There ARE NO updates for fedora 7 , none at all , and there never will be any.
