Thanks all for the replies.
According to fastest_cvsup:
- 1st: cvsup3.uk.freebsd.org 12.58 ms
- 2st: cvsup4.uk.freebsd.org 14.63 ms
- 3st: cvsup2.uk.freebsd.org 15.98 ms
I have updated again; cvsup3 was really fast and cvsup2 refused access sayi=
"Access Limit Exceeded"!
I am now looking into portsnap. The man page seems to me a bit vague for t=
first read unfortunately :-(
