yum connection error


Hi all,
I have a tiny problem with yum on a centos 6 server,
It seems like it cannot connect to any repo though I have an internet connection up and running.
I keep getting these errors:
$ yum list
http://centos.syn.co.il/6/os/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] PYCURL ERROR 7 - ""
Trying other mirror.
http://mirror.i3d.net/pub/fedora-epel/5/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] PYCURL ERROR 7 - ""
Trying other mirror.
http://mirrors.adnettelecom.ro/fedora/epel/5/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] PYCURL ERROR 7 - ""

I can ping the repo's domain and other web sites such as google.com
$ ping centos.syn.co.il
PING centos.syn.co.il ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 1.bint4.interhost.co.il ( icmp_seq=1 ttl=58 time=8.65 ms
64 bytes from 1.bint4.interhost.co.il ( icmp_seq=2 ttl=58 time=3.00 ms
$ ping google.com
PING google.com ( 56(84) bytes of data.

64 bytes from fa-in-f139.1e100.net ( icmp_seq=2 ttl=50 time=47.7 ms

Is there any other ports I should have opened in the firewall other that http(80)?

Thanks in advanced!
