Thanks for your replies. I mistyped. I meant pkg_add. In NetBSD installer when you select "Install binary packages (can't remember exact text)" it's what happens, after you specify the server/mirror etc, pkg_add would attempt to download pkgin package from your specified server and install it.

It simply freezes, until I abort it by Ctrl+C and Enter. When specifiyng false server or correct server but wrong path, installer would display the error about it just fine. With correct data, it just freezes. Perhaps it's non-functional IPV6 on my side, I am not sure. I've noticed that I had to delete ipv6 address in my ifconfig to get source ports to download without ipv6-caused time outs.
