i think you likely meant to put urpmi-proxy-0.2.4-3.mga2.src.rpm instead of 
file.src.rpm :-)

normally, if you want to use the urpmi-proxy on your server itself; you 
shouldn't use mirrorlist:// or urpmi:// style sources. it may work now, if 
your mirrorlist had been used before; but i'm not sure about this...

also, at this time, it's advisable to use a single mageia source, otherwise 
you might end up with warnings like these:

Argument "2\n2" isn't numeric in numeric lt (<) at 
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.12.3/MDV/Distribconf.pm line 416.
Argument "2\n2" isn't numeric in numeric ge (>=) at 
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.12.3/MDV/Distribconf.pm line 532.

when you look at the client who fetches this, you'll see that the media.cfg 
file in /etc/urpmi/media.d/*/media.cfg (or similar) has double results...
