Hi Dan and all,
ftp seems to be broken on my v7beta4 system. I have posted queries about it in various places to no avail. I am not expecting a miracle answer here, just hoping someone can help me figure out how to fix it.
Also, I am not sure whether this is related to the problem I am having trying to download distribution sets with systinstall, hence this separate message.
Here is what happens when I try to install a package remotely with pkg_add:
$ sudo pkg_add -vr rtorrent
looking up ftp.freebsd.org
connecting to ftp.freebsd.org:21
<<< 220 ftp.FreeBSD.org NcFTPd Server (licensed copy) ready.

Error: FTP Unable to get
File unavailable (e.g., file not found, no access)
pkg_add: unable to fetch
pkg_add: 1 package addition(s) failed
The package really is there; I can copy and paste the URL from the screen to grab it with wget, curl or fetch:
FWIW, I am running PF, but I am not fitering any outgoing traffic:
pass out all flags S/SA keep state
Someone suggested to me that this need env var needs to be set:
but it doesn't seem to affect things.
Also, what does this mean?
550 Cannot connect to 78.27.XX.XXX:53572
That is indeed my IP number, which I have partially masked.
I would really appreciatate any suggestions or ideas...

what mode is your PF running in regarding the kernel - Generic?
is PF defined in an OPEN or CLOSED state in the Kernel? set for defaults? or whatever syntax PF uses in kernel? Something to look into.
Just a hunch, it might simply be an "add" statement for a specific port, say 21 ftp. or simply a statement that needs to be added in the pf configs.
This is why i think this is so:
Example: i use ipfw, and when i try to make install clean in say /usr/ports/whatever,
i lately have had to shut off ipfw, download it, then enable my firewall again.
so obviously i haven't figured out the add statement yet, and I just do the manual stop and start afterwards.
Good Luck, OlyAnder
