The extra slash should be fine. I'm more concern about your network
setup. What does your virt-install line look like? does domU get an IP
address? does http log on dom0 shows ANY access from domU's IP

Usually it's easier to put domU on virbr0 bridge, and let domU use
dhcp to configure its IP address.

Can you download it to your computer? Just trying to eliminate
possible selinux/permission-related problem.
