Problems using smart to install rpms in suse 10.1 i586


Hallo!I have been trying to learn how to install rpms (in suse 10.1 i586) form the internet via smart package manager.I provided a new channel e.g. http://ftp.skynet.be/pub/suser-guru/rpm/10.1/ on the YAST2 repository but when I update the channel the following error appears

Failed acquiring information for 'Guru 10.1':
http://ftp.skynet.be/pub/suser-guru/...media.1/media: timed out

The media.1/media: (note the colon at the end)appears automatically when smart tries to acquire information without any intervention from me.I am sure that the http://ftp.skynet.be/pub/suser-guru/rpm/10.1/ url is genuine as I can see the rpms when I click on the link.

What could be the problem?

Please provide a solution to my problem and I will be infinitely grateful.Thanks in advance.

My guess is that the semicolon is just printed in the message, not used in the address. With the semicolon you'd get 'not found'-like error, not timeout. Do you try accessing the RPM directory from the same machine you have smarty problems? Maybe it's firewall-related?
