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:
 portsnap fetch
this message on the console is:
looking up mirrors ....non found.
Fetchin public key from ... 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.

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

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

portsnap -s 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,

portsnap extract
else, if you are just updating ports

portsnap update
