Default pkg_add problems with connecting

THis is part of my laptop install problem and this belongs here.

I have dhclient up now
and have exported the PKG_PATH variables.

ftp> nlist kde.tgz /var/tmp/pkg.00412b
pkg_add: short write: Broken pipe
sigpipe again
p_a chdir failed

on and on until
pkg_add: no pkg found for 'kde' , sorry.

Exporting 5.0. 5.0_2008Q4 5.0_2009Q1 all produce the same output.
It crashed after an attempted install of xfce4 from Q1.

I have everything in in /usr/pkg/bin

Do I need to mv or cp for theer to be a link in /usr/localORbin?

Oh, and what is the NetBSD substitute directory for local?

Could you give us the output of the following:
echo $PKG_PATH
ping -c 6 ftp.netbsd.org
pkg_add -v kde

I reinstalled NetBSD with the connection,
imported and extracted the sets,
exported the PKG_PATH variables,
and have started installing different sets.

If I have anymore problems, they'll be posted here.
In relation to pkgsrc.

Thanks for the help.
