Hello folks 
Do any know why this problem is coming up 
/etc/yum.repos.d# yum update 
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror 
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile 
Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=5&arch=x86_64&repo=addons error was 
[Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (111, 'Connection refused')> 
Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: addons 

Any idea to the solution: 

I have a server CentOS 5.5 and this is the content of my /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo 

# CentOS-Base.repo 
# The mirror system uses the connecting IP address of the client and the 
# update status of each mirror to pick mirrors that are updated to and 
# geographically close to the client. You should use this for CentOS updates 
# unless you are manually picking other mirrors. 
# If the mirrorlist= does not work for you, as a fall back you can try the 
# remarked out baseurl= line instead.

I'm in and out of here all the time, But I remember talk of a new-er mirroring system being in the works. With some functionality like fedora has where you can redirect your local subnets to your server, if its up to date.
Anyone else remember this? Correct me if I'm wrong.

I know currently, You have to change the repo.conf file for each machine to point it locally.

I was wondering, how does the "fastest mirror" algorithm work?

In my particular case, being a campus with large address pool I think it could be interesting if we could somehow force users from our subnet to use my mirror.
