Those servers are up and working for me. Can your server contact the Internet on port 80? Is DNS working correctly? – Ladadadada Jan 14 '13 at 12:59
Yes. The port 8080 is used for connecting server to internet. I have able to install another third party softwares using the same confoguration itself. The above error is getting after 5min. So I think mentioned error is not related with the DNS configuration. – Haseena Jan 15 '13 at 8:51
8080? Are you using a proxy to connect? 8080 is not the standard http port. Can you use wget or curl to request those files? – Ladadadada Jan 15 '13 at 9:15
Ya. Iam using proxy for internet access. – Haseena Jan 15 '13 at 9:56
You will need to configure yum to work with a proxy if you haven't already. If you have already set this up, the problem is likely on the proxy machine and not on your server. – Ladadadada Jan 15 '13 at 10:01
