I have written an ftp server in perl to aid with installations over ftp.
Do like this:
If your release is located in /path_to_relases/5.4-RELEASE on 10.0.0.99
Type on your 10.0.0.99 freebsd machine:
perlftp3.pl /path_to_relases 12000
Then start sysinstall on the machine to be installed/configured.
Select: "3 FTP Passive Install from an FTP server through a firewall".
Select: "URL Specify some other ftp site by URL"
Type: 10.0.0.99:12000/ (complete url ftp://10.0.0.99:12000/)
Any user/pass combination will do.
Will only read files.
Locks on the IP of the first client.
I hope this ease some installation scenarios.
