I'm sorry if these are silly questions, but I don't know exactly what you have tried and haven't tried.  

When you say that you tried the repo from the browser, is this a browser on the same computer that you are running yum from?  Have you tried doing a curl or wget to that link?  If curl and/or wget work, then yum should work.  This is where I would start.  

Do other rpms from this repo work?

If it gets too complicated and you need to get it done, download the rpm directly and install it from a local copy.

Can you post your /etc/yum.repos.d/*.repo?

Try -
yum clean all
yum repolist

still it didn't work, the server was placed in DMZ network, so want to know what are all the ports used by yum client to communicate with yum repository server, so that i can ask network team to verify those ports are opened on firewall.

You can enter proxy settings in /etc/yum.conf if you were given ones.

Add those to your yum.conf and post the result.

proxy_username=username
proxy_password=password
proxy=http://proxy.example.com:9090/

I'm assuming you are using an internal repo.  Is this correct? When you said you need to request open ports, so you mean to the intensely network? This makes sense to me if that is what it is.

Are you using wget out curl the way I mentioned above?

add "enabled=0" string to /etc/yum.repos.d/<repo>.repo
