I have been trying to install KDE by using pkg_add -r kde but the
download is always failing. Reading man pkg_add I see a reference to
change the FTP mode to passive if the download constantly fails.
However, man does not say which file should be edited to change it. I
tried pkgtools.conf but I have not found anything about FTP transfer
mode in there.
Can you advise which file needs to be edited?
"Note: If you wish to use passive mode ftp in such transfers, set the
variable FTP_PASSIVE_MODE to some value in your environment."
What value should be set for FTP_PASSIVE_MODE? Any value?
Yes just do something like that:
# export FTP_PASSIVE_MODE=true
Note that this is set automatically for the default login class
(/etc/login.conf). If you are not seeing it then either that file is
not up-to-date or your user account is not in the default login class
