Most likely it is permissions on the Server directory. If it isn't that then if you are running SELinux check the context of that folder.

Are you able to ftp-get anything from the pub/Server using plain ftp commands?

This system is not registered with RHN.
Please activate your paid Redhat account. Else no repositories.

Don't want to pay ? Then do not use Redhat EL.
There are free versions of Redhat EL : CentOS and Scientific Linux.
