Linux Software Mirror
The Linux Software Mirror (FTP Mirror) service provides a local repository of popular Linux distributions and update packages.
You can access the service via HTTP (http://ftpmirror.ncl.ac.uk) and FTP (ftp://ftpmirror.ncl.ac.uk) - both from on campus, only.
The mirrors are refreshed on a nightly basis. We will consider all requests to mirror other software distributions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your request.
Yum Repository Configurations
Configurations are available on the mirror; replace the default .repo files in your /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory with these customised versions to get packages and updates from the server. For older versions of yum with no /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory, just append the contents of each file to /etc/yum.conf as required
