FC2 updates from local FTP server

I have a server running Fedora Core 2. I also have a few workstations on my LAN.

I was trying to configure one of the workstations to act as an FTP server for updates for my FC2 server as it is easier for me to download the updates through my works broadband connection than my dial-up at home.

My workstation is running Win XP SP2 with firewall disabled internally. Using an anonymous FTP server (IIS 6 on Win XP) and yum to update from this machine, I keep getting errors trying to read the file ftp://ftpsrvr/fc2/updates/headers/ saying that the file has no content.

If, from the server I connect via FTP and download this file, all of the contents are there and no problems can be seen. Even the logs seems absolutely fine.

Has anyone come across this before?
