    Hi,

    I'm using Parallels 3.0 Build 5584 on a MacPro with Leopard 10.5.2. /usr/bin/csup does not work on FreeBSD6.3 and FreeBSD7.0 in VM's on this box (didn't had the chance to try another BSD-Release). Whenever I try to use csup on my ports-tree, csup becomes stuck at checking out ports/MOVED and after a while the network connection gets reset by peer (see attached screenshot).

    The network connection of the VM works. I can ssh, telnet etc. to any destination. cvsup.de.freebsd.org (the host I'm trying to synch with) is up and running (tried that with a dedicated FreeBSD6.3 client here). So either it is the VM, Parallels or my stupidity which renders csup in paralllels unusable....any hints?!

    Today I played with the network settings of my FreeBSD VMs. csup does not fail if I choose "Bridged Ethernet" in parallels. Choosing "Shared Networking" (which is the default and "recommended" when creating VMs) makes csup fail. Strange...
