Portsnap not installed - cannot install it
hi guys, i am running pfsense 2.1, and i am trying to add nginx but i need to compile it with a few more modules from ports. however portsnap is not installed, and i cannot add it either:
any hints on how to get this rolling?
[2.1-BETA0][root@pf01]/root(9): pkg_add -r portsnap
Error: Unable to get ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/amd64/packages-8.3-release/Latest/portsnap.tbz: File unavailable (e.g., file not found, no access)
pkg_add: unable to fetch 'ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/amd64/packages-8.3-release/Latest/portsnap.tbz' by URL
You cannot compile packages on the firewall, and you don't want to.
Compile a package on a separate full FreeBSD box and then copy them over.
oki dokie thanks for the answer. i will do just that.
