Our IBM repository hosting only supports FTP at the moment, but we're
working on getting HTTP support enabled.

In the meantime, you can host your own HTTP mirror or sync the repository
it to the IFS using plugin in the latest ACS. Of course, this assumes that
your workstation can access FTP.

Subject: [IBMiOSS] yum using http instead of ftp?
Date: Mon, Jul 2, 2018 1:17 PM

Folks:

Does anyone know if there is a way to reconfigure yum on i so that it
will use http (or https) instead of ftp to download the repository
information?

Our ITS group has locked down FTP, so I can't use yum at the present
time.

Thanks!

david

IBM i on Power Systems: For when you can't afford to be out of business!

I'm riding 615 miles (Yes, you read that right) in the American Diabetes
Association's Tour de Cure to raise money for diabetes research,
education, advocacy, and awareness. You can make a tax deductible
donation to my ride by visiting [1]https://mideml.diabetessucks.net.

You can see where my donations come from by visiting my interactive
donation map ... [2]https://mideml.diabetessucks.net/map (it's a geeky
thing).

I may have diabetes, but diabetes doesn't have me!
