#48207: Yosemite MacPort intallation file does not work

Comment (by ionic@…):

 `rsync.macports.org/release` does exists, but not on the HTTP server.

 By default, MacPorts fetches the ports tree and base (source code of
 itself) via `rsync` - which uses port 873. If this port is blocked, you
 will be unable to do the initial sync.

 Either let your IT department allow outgoing connections to port 873 or
 switch over to HTTP fetching. The [[howto/PortTreeTarball]] wiki page
 documents how to do this (for the ports tarball.)

 I'll have to look up how to change base fetching to HTTP.
