Thanks to the generosity of TDC Internet, the FreeBSD Project primary
public FTP server is back on-line. The new machine is a full and
complete official mirror site for ftp-master.freebsd.org.
Note that this also represents a shift away from our previous model of
having only one master FTP server for both mirrors and end-users to
use. We now maintain ftp-master.freebsd.org as the "definitive
repository" for all things FreeBSD and make it accessible only to
tier-one mirror sites. The new ftp.freebsd.org is one such mirror,
albeit a very well-connected and maintained one, which will serve both
the tier-two mirrors and end-users. It is located in Denmark and has
good connectivity both with Europe and to the United States.
In time, we hope to add more tier-one sites and migrate to a far more
fault-tolerant model than we had before. Your patience during this
services transition has been greatly appreciated.
