[root@aprem ~]# rpm --import *** dag.wieers.com/packages/RPM-GPG-KEY.dag.txt
error: *** dag.wieers.com/packages/RPM-GPG-KEY.dag.txt: import read failed(-1).
rpmk: url.c:103: XurlFree: Assertion `u && u->magic == 0xd00b1ed0' failed.

Try putting:

http://dag.wieers.com/packages/RPM-GPG-KEY.dag.txt

into the Firefox address line and see if the key is downloadable. That loads the key into my browser.

If the key is not displayed by Firefox, then you either have a networking issue or something like a DNS resolution issue. Assuming your download attempt fails, try:

ping dag.wieers.com
