View Full Version : What ports does Yum use...

20th January 2006, 08:59 AM
I'm using a host that is running fedora core 2, I'm trying to use yum and for some reason it keeps timing out.

By default they have these ports open on their firewall to my server:

22 (SSH)
80 (HTTP)
443 (HTTPS)
3389 (RDP)
5900 (VNC)
8443 (Plesk)

Does yum use any other ports that I don't know about?

Thanks for the help guys.

Are you behind a proxy or something?

Destination(Server) port is HTTP.
see /etc/yum.repos.d/* files.

I think you are sitting behind a proxy..
If so, then
>export http_proxy=proxyaddress : portno
and then provide
>yum -y update

I think this can solve your problem..
