OMG can we please trim these posts a little. :)

Are you using a mirrorlist?
does your proxy allow ftp traffic as well as http traffic through?
does your proxyserver restrict which outgoing hosts you can connect to?

As a test, try changing the repo definition to use the baseurl rather 
than the mirrorlist.

* If that doesn't work:

can you manually download the repomd.xml file that seems unreachable?
These lines will wrap!

curl -x http://172.161.432.234:8080 -U arun:arun258 -O \
