Syncing channels

SUSE Manager can sync channels from NCC through a corporate proxy.

Channel syncing is done with mgr-ncc-sync. It supports both http/https protocols as well as authentication for proxies.

The easiest way to configure the proxy is by using yast2. mgr-ncc-sync will then read the proxy configuration from yast2's config files. Alternatively, the environment variables HTTP_PROXY and HTTPS_PROXY can be set. Proxy authentication is only supported by setting the username/password in the URL of these environment variables.
