zypper timeout all respositories

I was installing a few pkgs on my SLED 11 system (via ssh) this afternoon and then started getting zypper '[FONT=Courier New]Timeout exceeded when accessing ‘https://nu.novell.com/repo/$RCE/SLED11-SP1-Updates/sle-11-x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml?credentials=NCCcredentials’[/FONT] errors for all repositories. Is there something going on with the repos right now?

Any ideas what is going on?

I am able to get to the package repositories via YaST. Curious why zypper is timing out.

Nevermind. All the repos are responding now. Chalk that up as a glitch in the SuSE/Novell system.

Yes, they are having some issues at present.
