I have a problem with a box I upgraded from FreeBSD 6.2 To FreeBSD7
It seems the following is happening when I try use portupgrade -a or even
ALL transfers that are FTP fail.
Now to make this simple, I have following environmental variables set..
And here is the strange thing..
Fetch fails, but if I use wget there is no problem.
The firewall does allow ftp to go directly aswell, so I have also tried
leaving out any and all proxy settings, this fails aswell. (Except for wget
And here is the crux.
I have 5 mahcines on SAME network that has no issues like this, so this
makes me think fetch is broke somehow.
How can I force FreeBSD to use wget instead of fetch to bypass this?

Try `wget --help' for more options.

wget: invalid option --
Usage: wget [OPTION]... [URL]...
