YUM configuration issue

I have configured yum server successfully.
the repository is in /root/Desktop/Repository

I tested it in the server side and was successful.

In the client side I don't know what I have to mention as the base URL in the clienside configuration file.

Please advise.

you have to install httpd or vsftpd on server to allow clients to use files on repository.

create repo file in client (same as the one you have for local repo) and replace baseurl

if httpd,

if vsftpd,

where x.x.x.x is server ip address

a question ?
the repository is in /root/Desktop/Repository
Why ?

why are you using the "special folder" " Desktop" and in the ROOT home folder ?

linux is not windows
please do not use the very special "Desktop" folder as a install location

Have u installed FTP on your server
if u have done it then place ur repository contents in /var/ftp/pub/ directory

And go to ur client machine
open /etc/yum.repos.d/rhel-debuginfo.repo file
that file should look like

#yum clean all
#yum list

Now try to install
