You're using the wrong filenames. Here's the 4.8 directory listing: ftp> cd 4.8 250 Directory successfully changed. ftp> ls 200 PORT command successful. Consider using PASV. 150 Here comes the directory listing. 4.8-RELEASE-i386-disc1.iso 4.8-RELEASE-i386-disc2.iso 4.8-RELEASE-i386-mini.iso CHECKSUM.MD5 226 Directory send OK. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
