(Sorry for the inconvenience)

We are always interested in more download mirrors. If you have a system with a high-speed connection, 150-200GB of space, and the ability to rsync with a host, you can greatly help the PC-BSD project and PC-BSD users by becoming a mirror. More mirrors means faster download speeds and more geographic locations for users to download from.

As an example, this rsync command will mirror the entire ISO and PBI collection:

rsync -vaz --delete isc.pcbsd.org::ftp .

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 the URL of the mirror so that the new mirror can get listed and become available to users.
