Anyone using rPath Virtual Appliances?
rPath offer quite a lot of different appliances (you can find them in VMware's Virtual Appliance list) and they generally seem to be pretty good quality. I have a few cases where I'd prefer to deploy a blog or wiki on it's own virtual server rather than have it on a shared server, and the rPath appliances require less maintenance and setup than a full server install.
However, I simply can't get the appliance (or more accurately, the Conary update service) to go through our proxy, which is required by our ISP. I have three proxies to choose from, two without authentication, and it won't work with any of them. Conary just reports 'invalid proxy for http'.
Has anyone had any luck with this? Or any rPath experiences they'd care to share?
EDIT: Urgh, the rPath Wordpress appliance is from 2007 which has an old version or Conary which doesn't have proper proxy support...
