In both instances, you can run the `file ...` utility to learn what your computer might think the file is. For example:

    $ file /opt/local/var/macports/software/libiconv/libiconv-1.14_0.darwin_10.x86_64.tbz2
    /opt/local/var/macports/software/libiconv/libiconv-1.14_0.darwin_10.x86_64.tbz2: bzip2 compressed data, block size = 900k
    $ file /opt/local/var/macports/software/libiconv/libiconv-1.14_0.darwin_10.x86_64.tbz2.rmd160
    /opt/local/var/macports/software/libiconv/libiconv-1.14_0.darwin_10.x86_64.tbz2.rmd160: data

The *.tbz2 file should be an archive of the destroot folder for any given package, so if you expand it you'd fine the usual opt/local structures inside it.

The *.rmd160 file is a hash which will just be gibberish, always of a specific length. If you see HTML in this file or `file ...` tells you it's not just data, then you are right to assume something is blocking access.

You might find some extra information if you try downloading the files using a browser:
