A lot of users > think that packages == ports, I don't normally do this as Watson is usually less impressed when Holmes reveals his working, but the clues were there. He wrote: "install software with ports (i.e, the /usr/ports collection.)" and "FTP to grab source files from mirrors" If you combine that with crediting the poster with enough common sense to mention he was using a version before 6.2, then it seemed unlikely to be a problem with active FTP. BTW neither of us actually answered the question. I know I forgot as I was in a hurry. I'm pretty sure you didn't either, but I don't have the time to read all of your reply in detail. The answer is: enable outgoing tcp connections to port 21 and to all ports above 1023. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
