Hello everyone.
I was trying to install FreeBSD and NetBSD on two of my computers at home this morning, but was running into a bit of a problem. I was doing FTP installs as I dont have any blank CD-R's. :)

Anyway, during the part of the install where you specify the FTP site, the computers had trouble reaching the FTP site. It could not connect for some reason. I have setup the networking part of the setup, so they should be fine network wise.

I did some flipping through the PF guide at openbsd.org and verified that I did have a FTP proxy setup. I do. I redid exactly what was suggested in the guide, but no luck.

Is there something im missing, or is their something else I can do to fix this? I'm not sure what exactly the problem is. Seems like, during the install I cant ftp and at other times, during a normal usage day, I can ftp just fine.

Any suggestions?

Nevermind. I changed to a different port and it seems to be working fine now. :)

If you have more trouble you might check out the 'ftp-proxy' option for pf.
