I have configured Yum Server on Server 10.0.0.1(Redhat 5.3) All RPMS are here /home/RPMS/Server.
Now on another machine i have Centos 5.3 (10.0.0.30).I want to use yum Server of 10.0.0.1 on 10.0.0.3 as client.
So i did edit yum.conf file on client as
[b] baseurl=ftp://10.0.0.1/home/RPMS/Server gpgcheck=0
When i am passing command yum list then it is showing error.
[root@client30 ~]# yum list Repository 'b' is missing name in configuration, using id ftp://10.0.0.1/home/RPMS/Server/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 4] IOError: [Errno ftp error] (113, 'No route to host') Trying other mirror. Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: b. Please verify its path and try again [root@client30 ~]#
But if put RPMS on server under /var/ftp/pub/RPMS then ,evrything working fine.
I have already given 777 permission on server.
Kindly help what i can do so that client start using yum server configured on Server with the same file path.Actually size of / is small so i cant put files under /var/ftp/pub.
