Recently {releng4,current} have been having problems, eg:

dom at gallium:/home/dom$ ftp
Name ( ftp
331 Guest login ok, send your email address as password.
550 Can't set guest privileges.
ftp: Login failed.
ftp> quit
221 Goodbye.

You can get STABLE and CURRENT snapshots from
if you don't mind the long distance. I believe the server is pretty
well connected though. (*whisper* *whisper*)

Perhaps emailing the FTP administrators, or the Hubs (freebsd-hubs@)
would be a good idea regarding this problem.
