ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/ is currently rejecting my "anonymous" in 50% of a small sample of attempts. To OP: you may wish to try one of the mirrors closer to you (Spain, France, South Africa?? I have no idea how you connect to the world). See http://www.freebsd.org/doc/fr_FR.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/mirrors-ftp.html Another thought is to consider using Bittorrent if it is available to you. As this splits the files into many small chunks, checksums each one independently, and can be stopped and restarted at any time with very little loss of already transferred bytes, you may find it more resilient in your situation. --Jon Radel
