maybe hardening issues
No, I did reduce the etc/services list to tighten security and turned off some services. Does Python or Yum use any of those to find a mirror? What port does yum use? I may have it block in the firewall as well. Iptables rules are very tight right for both ingress and egress traffic. I'm not letting much out except udp:53, ntp:123 and tcp:53 to one address and tcp:22 for ssh.
Another pass at the issue. I stopped iptables and replace etc/services with the original services file and the problem continues...
