The yum command line tool is used to install and update software packages under RHEL / CentOS Linux server. I know how to apply updates using yum update command line, but I’d like to use cron to manually update packages where appropriate. How do I configure yum to install software patches / updates automatically with cron?

I’ve couple of remote servers and I’d like to access few admin only application running on port 10000 and 3001. My firewall only allows port 80, 443, 25, 22 and 110 for public access.
