The sources.list generator at repogen looks to be a good way to get a customized sources file. Try using that to get a feel for the syntax and content of the file.

A proxy could be configured such that it wouldn't let you access the server. To fix this you must open /etc/apt/apt.conf and change or remove Acquire::http::Proxy
