After switching the registration URL from a local SMT server to secure-www.novell.com in /etc/suseRegister.conf the registration process fails with:
Invalid protocol(http://secure-www.novell.com/center/regsvc/?command=listproducts&lang=en-US&version=1.0). https is required.


This issue may be experienced if the trailing / in the URL is missing. The correct settings for /etc/suseRegister.conf are:
url = https://secure-www.novell.com/center/regsvc/
