the pkg_add -r command does no use the port names with the version
number on them.
Check out the install guide at  and read the
'port and package section' for a detailed description on how to find
the correct package name to use.

No queue.  Presumably you have a local network problem involving
active versus passive FTP or perhaps a Path MTU discovery issue,
although you might simply have PACKAGESITE set wrong, too.  :-)

Does "ifconfig _en0_ mtu 1400" fix it, where you replace _en0_ with
the NIC you have...?
