yum server configuration


I have setup client and server but on client I get the message

" Updating Red Hat Repositories"

ftp://192.168.1.10/pub/Packages/repodata/repomd.xml : [Errno 14] PYCURL ERROR 7 - "couldn't connect to host"
Trying other mirror


The client repo file is as follows:

[client]
name=Client Repository
baseurl=ftp://192.168.1.10/pub/Packages/
gpgcheck=0


& the server repo file is

[server]
name=Server Repository
baseurl=file:///var/ftp/pub/Packages/
gpgcheck=0



I have installed the vsftpd service on the server side and firewall is disabled on both sides.

So this is the problem.

(1)Check is ftp server running or not. "ps -ef|grep vsftp"
(2)ping the ftp server from client end.
(3) check your iptable. iptables -L

(3) from client side to your ftp server, use this command ,paste the output.
"telnet 192.168.1.10 21"

It seems you are not using correct path in configuration file.
Use ftp in browser ,reach to .xml path. Copy that path and use it in configuration file.

I can see folders in ftp://192.168.1.10/pub/

But can't see any files in /pub/Packages/


When I enter the full path ftp://192.168.1.10/pub/Packages/repodata/repomd.xml I get the message : "550 Failed to change directory"

login into ftp server.
cd /your/path/of/ftp_data_dir

check inside, does pub/packages has files and dir.

It seems you have not copied the data in /pub/
