Can you manually fetch the file from that location, for example
using, for example:
# ftp ftp://ftp-archive.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD-Archive/ports/amd64/packages-8.4-release/Latest/compat6x.tbz
# wget ftp://ftp-archive.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD-Archive/ports/amd64/packages-8.4-release/Latest/compat6x.tbz
The file actually is there and can be downloaded. Check for
networking problems or general access to ftp-archive.freebsd.org,
you should be able to connect.
Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0
