INDEX-6 and FreeBSD

I’m FreeBSD addict, use ports everyday and can’t live without port :-)

Today, one of our server don’t seem hit firewall restriction and I nothing I can do .

I see INDEX-6 everytime I try to issue command : make fetchindex but nothing show up.

After scp INDEX-6 from other server I can update the ports.

ftp# cd /usr/ports
ftp# make fetchindex

^Cfetch: transfer interrupted

ftp# portversion -v | grep ‘<‘

Fetching the ports index …
^Cfetch: transfer interrupted
failed to fetch INDEX!
Updating the ports index … failed to generate INDEX!
index generation error

mail# scp /usr/ports/INDEX-6 mother@172.88.1.3:/home/mother

ftp# portversion -v | grep ‘<‘
