I am trying to download a release 4.8 of FreeBSD but I am having problems finding the correct file names/locations to download the files.
I can ftp to ftp1.us.FreeBSD.org as well as other mirror sites I can cd to pub/FreeBSD/releases/i386/4.8-RELEASE I cannot "dir" or "ls" to see the list of files in the directory--I get "Connection closed by remote host." I assume the files are hidden? Given that I cannot see the file names I was following the instructions and filenames given in the FreeBSD Handbook. I have tried to get: 4.8-mini.iso 4.8-disc1.iso I have also tried getting these images from this path as well: pub/FreeBSD/ISO-IMAGES-i386/4.8 Does anyone know of a mirror ftp that will allow me to see the file names? Or allow me privileges to see and download the files? Here is my typical session from DOS ftp: C:\download>ftp ftp> open ftp1.us.FreeBSD.org Connected to freebsd.secsup.org. 220 Welcome to mirrors.secsup.org FTP service. User (freebsd.secsup.org:(none)): ftp 331 Please specify the password. Password: 230 Login successful. Have fun. ftp> cd pub/FreeBSD/ISO-IMAGES-i386/4.8 250 Directory successfully changed. ftp> get "4.8-disc1.iso" r48_disc1.iso Connection closed by remote host. ftp> I am at a loss. -Alex _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
