I had this same problem when I was on dial up line.
Once I got cable ISP internet connection the problem never happened
again.
Those ftp sites are busy and dial up connections degrade performance
for the other concurrent users logged onto the ftp site and so dial
up users get timed out and dropped.

Subject: Numerous ftp timeouts - why?


New to FreeBSD not new to *nix.  Have the docs/handbook/faq, etc.
Using
freebsd 6.0 RELEASE on Compaq Proliant 2500R.
Why when trying to install various apps from ports do the ftp
sessions
frequently timeout?  If I manually fetch packages from
sites the download goes ok, but this means I have to copy files to
/usr/ports/distfiles manually.  did 'man fetch' but still no clue
as to why this happens.

Thank You,

Michael
