Error at "portsnap fetch extract" of DevelopersBootStrapAndDevISO
Trying to get my feet wet building pfsense, perhaps to make a custom installation CD.
First I installed FreeBSD 7.2 instead of 7.0 or 7.1 because that is what I understand 1.2.3 to be based on. I did not create a jail because this is a single-use VM and it says "optional".
Did step 1 box.
Started step 2 box:
portsnap fetch extract

Long number may have been copied wrong (Manual) but I assume that this is not important to someone pointing out my ignorant error.
That sounds like it downloaded an incorrect file.
Is this text box behind a proxy or portal of some kind? Or does it have direct access to the web? That file should be much larger than 2654 bytes.
Apologize. It was blocked by my filter (dansguardian). I will fix this and try again.
