Fetch regularly takes a long time to deliver content and often completely timeout the connection.
I notices that poudriere builds often fail to complete because some ports can not be fetched.
(Different ports this is just one example)
=> Attempting to fetch...
Something very odd just occurred on my laptop when I performed a freebsd-update fetch & install. When I did the fetch it reported that there was a new patch (I was already on p4), so I then performed the "freebsd-update install" as usual and then did a reboot.
When I checked it using uname -a...
I've noticed this message in the daily reports:
It comes from a service ntpd onefetch.
The file does not seem truncated, and is not yet expired (it says "File expires on: 28 June 2022").
I already ran freebsd-update fetch (everything is up to date).
Is there anything to do, or to worry about?
Does FreeBSD have a robust HTTP library? I see fetch(3), but it does not seem to be able to do a POST request.
I am writing some code that, at least aspirationally, I would like to to someday land in Base. I am trying to avoid 3rd party libraries and would sure hate to write my own POST...
I wanted to update my system one last time before upgrading to 11.2-RELEASE.
Apparently my machine is looking for files that aren't even available:
admin@server ~ sudo freebsd-update -v debug fetch install
src component not installed, skipped
Looking up update.FreeBSD.org mirrors...
To strength security of the firewall (we all know that ftp is a challenge for firewall security) I want enforce ftp-client establish only a specific port for data.
My box is an ftp client in terms of ftp communication. I don't need ftp server on my box (we live in era of cloud services!), but...
I have an issue when I do this command:
# rm -rf /var/db/portsnap/*
# portsnap fetch
Looking up portsnap.FreeBSD.org mirrors... none found.
Fetching public key from portsnap.FreeBSD.org... done.
Fetching snapshot tag from portsnap.FreeBSD.org... done.
Fetching snapshot metadata... done...
I don't understand why I can't use fetch from inside my jail.
# fetch http://www.yahoo.com
fetch: http://www.yahoo.com: Protocol not supported
Name resolution works:
# host -t A yahoo.com
yahoo.com has address 22.214.171.124
yahoo.com has address...
At work I have a VM on my laptop for testing and general respite from Windows, it's running FreeBSD 10.3:
bil@fbsd-bil:guessing_game %>uname -a
FreeBSD fbsd-bil 10.3-RELEASE-p3 FreeBSD 10.3-RELEASE-p3 #0: Tue May 17 08:43:55 UTC 2016...
