That's okay.

Ah, I guess you need to specify a version number. There are
different versions of Samba in the ports tree, so I think there
are also different packages, e. g. try

	# pkg_add -r samba34

This should give you the latest version, 3.4. There's also 3, 
3.2 and 3.3 available (same naming scheme for the package).

Anyway, check if you can connect to (or just ping) ftp.freebsd.org
to make sure - REALLY SURE - that a connection is possible.

PS. Please try to avoid top-posting plus full quotes, or
    quoted replies, it makes the list unreadable. Thanks!
