Creating Local YUM Repo for Updates?


Hi Guys,

I have setup a local YUM Repository for RHEL Servers following the process similar as http://www.howtoforge.com/setting-up...sitory-fedora8 but I need a help regarding the updates.I have firewalls configured on my LAN due to which I cant rsync for updates.I can see lots of packages daily added to the Internet Repository.If internet connectivity is not there, Can I download updates from the internet manually every weekend?I am ready to download atleast every week manually so that update can be installed therein.
Do let me know if there is any other choice to got for the same.

Sure you can dump your downloaded packagesin your local repo and re-run 'createrepo' to update the cache. Wrt to firewalling, if you have access to a proxy and the proxy can access remote port TCP/873 then you should be able to use rsync. Else if you allow SSH and a remote shell account you could tunnel rsync over SSH. Else maybe tell us what port access is allowed and maybe some solution turns up...
