We are always interested in more download mirrors. If you have spare web space and bandwidth on your server, you can greatly help the PC-BSD project and PC-BSD users by becoming a mirror. More mirrors means higher download speeds and more geographic locations for users to download from.
+
  
Mirrors are the lifeblood of any open source project such as PC-BSD. If you have a system with a high-speed connection, 150-200GB of space, and the ability to '''rsync''' with a host, then we need you!

As an example, this '''rsync''' command will mirror the entire ISO and PBI collection:
 
  
'''rsync -vaz --delete isc.pcbsd.org::ftp .'''
+
=== NOTE: In late 2013 PC-BSD switched to a CDN for its file-distribution. ===
  
That command should be run as a cron job with a recommended frequency of once daily.

Once you've begun the rsync process, please send an email to kris at pcbsd dot org letting him know of the mirror URL so the new mirror can get listed and become available to users.
 
  
'''Note:''' You don't have to run a server to help increase download speeds for other users. PC-BSD is also distributed as a [http://www.gotbsd.net/ torrent] and you can help us with seeding, especially the first two weeks after a new release. If you're new to seeding, check out the [http://www.gotbsd.net/faq.html FAQ].
