> You apparently can't connect to our rsync server. Various network conditions or firewall or antivirus software could cause that. If you cannot resolve it by working with your network administrator or by uninstalling the software that's causing the problem, then you will not be able to use selfupdate (you'll have to update MacPorts base by downloading the installer from our web site) and you will need to configure MacPorts to use a method other than rsync for sync (for when you want to update your ports tree). One method is to use the ports.tar.gz file, as you've discovered from reading the wiki.

Ryan thanks. You are correct, the only hard bit is I am the network admin for my network. I also run 1/2 dox macport installations that all work. Check check oops they don’t!!!

The new bit is a Telstra NBN modem (for Aus’s new high speed broadband.) If any Aus user has tamed the Telstra NBN modem please tell me what and how.

Sorry for the noise
