The free version of RHN Satellite that does not require paying for an entitlement from Red Hat is called Spacewalk, at Spacewalk: Free & Open Source Linux Systems Management. It's fully documented at Spacewalk: Free & Open Source Linux Systems Management. It's normally used to support Fedora channels, but you can upload RHEL distributions or any other RPMS to it and set up channels.

Without a valid Satellite entitlement, you won't be able to subscribe to Red Hat Network to get the ongoing additions/changes/errata for RHEL, but you can load static content.

1. Copy the RPMs from the installation DVDs to the /var/www/html/el6/6/os directory

The apache web server should be running; now, create a repository header by issuing the below command:

createrepo /var/www/html/el6/6/os


Now, in the client machine, create a file /etc/yum.repos.d/el.repo to have it look like:

name=Local Repository

make sure the repository file name in both server and client pc are same and try to do with ftp instead of http
such as
In client--
#vim  /etc/yum.repos.d/server1.repo
name=local repo

In server---
vim /etc/yum.repos.d/server1.repo
name=local repo
