gentoo emerge --sync

I need to use gentoo's emerge --sync (or the equivalent) with rsync ports closed. How do I do this?

As it says in the handbook:

If you are unable to rsync due to firewall restrictions you can still update your Portage tree by using our daily generated Portage tree snapshots. The emerge-webrsync tool automatically fetches and installs the latest snapshot on your system
