Updates timeout connecting to pkg.pfsense.org.
« on: January 04, 2018, 02:23:59 pm »
Hi,

I'm trying to update from 2.3.2 to the newest version.  However, the update keeps failing when trying to download packages from pkg.pfsense.org.  Is it supposed to be using pkg.pfsense.org?

Code: [Select]
dig pkg.pfsense.org @ns1.netgate.com
...gives:

Code: [Select]

that is never going to work because pkg.pfsense.org is not a A record its SRV record..

Dig for
_http._tcp.pkg.pfsense.org

or

dig _https._tcp.pkg.pfsense.org

example

> dig _http._tcp.pkg.pfsense.org SRV

; <<>> DiG 9.11.2 <<>> _http._tcp.pkg.pfsense.org SRV

Thanks for the quick reply and explanation.  I didn't realized it was using a SRV record.  I'm likely seeing a localized issue since I see now that it fails (randomly) on different packages.  Sorry for the noise.
