Thanks for the suggestion, but I'm afraid I get the same response
with this IP address, eg
------------------------------------
[tim elizabeth ~]$ wget --no-check-certificate https://66.35.62.166/metalink
--2009-07-17 15:14:19--  https://66.35.62.166/metalink
Connecting to 66.35.62.166:443... connected.
WARNING: certificate common name `*.fedoraproject.org' doesn't match 
requested host name `66.35.62.166'.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 404 Not Found
2009-07-17 15:14:20 ERROR 404: Not Found.
------------------------------------

I'm pretty sure it is a problem on my system,
but I can't work out what it can be.
As I said, it is as though the fedoraproject site
runs some test to see if the files metalink or mirrorlist
should be seen by me, and for some reason my system fails the test.

Incidentally, I seem to have no problem if I substitute 
my local repository, eg
baseurl=http://ftp.heanet.ie/pub/fedora/linux/updates/11/x86_64/
for fedora-updates .
