OK, I tried with 'portsnap fetch' command as root too, but it stall too:
Looking up mirrors... 5 mirrors found.
Fetching snapshot tag from done.
Fetching snapshot metadata... done.
Fetching snapshot generated at Mon Mar 28 02:04:59 CEST 2011:
'here is a long word of letters and numbers' 18% of 64 MB 341 kBps

Here (or at 67%, or at.. but never reach 100%) stall the download. :(
What can I do to solve this problem?
