Yes. This should work for both ftp and http in yum 2.1.X (possibly
earlier, but I don't remember).

I very much doubt that this is a problem with your username/password
syntax. I've just tested that locally and it seems to work fine for
me. Also, the error you're getting is about changing directory. The
way ftplib does things is a bit stupid, so it might be a problem in
there. Do a couple things for me.
1) test it with urlgrabber directly. Run "python" from the command
line and then type in these commands:
>>> from urlgrabber.grabber import URLGrabber
>>> g = URLGrabber()
See what happens with that. I expect you to get the same
exception, although probably less pretty than yum makes it.
2) Try your url with another client. I know the same syntax won't
work, so remove the username:password part and just enter them the way
that client expects you to.
