[K12OSN] yum error (apt too)

Hi folks,

When I try to check for updates using either yum or apt-get (I prefer 
yum) I get the following message:

	Server: K12TLSP
	retrygrab() failed for:
   		Executing failover method
	failover: out of servers to try
	Error getting file 
	[Errno 4] IOError: [Errno ftp error] (111, 'Connection refused')

Do I need to tweak something somewhere, and if so what.  So far I've 
tried uninstalling and reinstalling yum (from the very same repository 
I'm trying to get updates from.)  I had to download it on my OS X 
laptop and scp it to my server however because, when I try to get it 
using ftp from my server I get the connection refused message.  The 
only difference I can see between my two ftp sessions is that the OS X 
session says it is using Extended Passive mode when it  makes 
transfers, while the K12ltsp server is using just plain old Passive 

All suggestions welcome.
