I am having trouble using pkg_add -r <some package>. I keep getting
the following error.
p0069# pkg_add -r bash
Error: FTP Unable to get
Network is unreachable
pkg_add: unable to fetch
by URL

I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but
- I have rebuilt the kernel successfully
p0069# uname -a
FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE-p12 FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE-p12 #0: Thu

- And there is no ports tree installed.. ie /usr/ports does not exist.
- I can ping
- I can also ftp>open

Any thoughts on trouble shooting this would be appreciated.
