default fedora up2date servers


does anyone know what the default up2date servers for fedora are by any chance?
I changed them a while ago, but I don't rememeber why and the ones I'm using seem
to be pretty slow.

I've found the RH ones to be incrediably slow. I'm away from my machine at the moment will post them later.

The sites are
yum fedora-core-1 http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu.../linux/core/1/$ARCH/os/
yum updates-released http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...ore/updates/1/$ARCH/

in the file

/etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources

You could try -
ftp://ftp.mirror.ac.uk/sites/fedora....com/1/i386/os/
ftp://ftp.mirror.ac.uk/sites/fedora....pdates/1/i386/

You will need to ensure that the path is correct. Fire up up2date first to check the expanded paths and then match them with your local (fastest) mirror.

I live in the UK and am happy with the speed of ftp.mirror.ac.uk.
