freeBSD9 portsnap fetch in failed
 
Hello all,
I come from, how to post, because I encounter a problem, rather important
I installed as a guest: freeBSD Version 9: amd64
VM on VirtualBox (last version: 4.14)
entire installation is done correctly.
it will allow me to work some applications, and configurations of a prod that I gere.
now my problem is to perform an Update,
either by the cmd:
Code:

portsnap fetch
this message on the console is:
Code:

looking up portsnap.FreeBSD.org mirrors ....non found.
Fetchin public key from portsnap.FreeBSD.org ... failed
no mirrors remainning, givin up

I would really like a hand, is on problem
if I have not forgotten to activate a parameter, but I advise not getting a penny at the conf files related to "portsnap".

is there an admin person, familiar with BSD, for this solution, in order to have a minimum drinking system.
thank you to all guidelines and advice.
cordially

Assuming you have no physical network problems or DNS/firewall issues, try this

Code:

dig portsnap.freebsd.org +short
For me that returns 149.20.53.40, now try the portsnap fetch command listing this the IP address you got back from above

Code:

portsnap -s 149.20.53.40 fetch
Again, assuming no weird networking issues are at play this should complete. Once complete and if this is the first time you are running portsnap then,

Code:

portsnap extract
else, if you are just updating ports

Code:

portsnap update

Hello, and thank you for your reply.
there is a problem on my physical network card that I had activated.
there is on parameter
the side of some service in connection with the BSD type cards vmnet 1 and 8.
and its working again.
thank you very much for the advice.
cordially
