yum pkg install failure - url timeout

I'm able to open repomd.xml with firefox but failed yum. Any hints?

yum -y --installroot=/home/Mb2_Projects install yum yum-protectbase
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
http://<my repo url>/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 12] Timeout: <urlopen error timed out>
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: <my repo name>. Please verify its path and try again

What version of Fedora are you running? What repo are you having trouble with?
