New to FreeBSD not new to *nix. Have the docs/handbook/faq, etc. Using
freebsd 6.0 RELEASE on Compaq Proliant 2500R.
Why when trying to install various apps from ports do the ftp sessions
frequently timeout? If I manually fetch packages from
sites the download goes ok, but this means I have to copy files to
/usr/ports/distfiles manually. did 'man fetch' but still no clue
as to why this happens.
