Portfiles are normally retrieved with port sync or port selfupdate. The URL used to get Portfiles is set in ${prefix}/etc/macports/sources.conf. The current list of mirrors is:

  • rsync:// - CA, USA
  • rsync:// - Trondheim, Norway


Distfiles are the archives containing the source code for port. They are usually retrieved from the project's site or of their mirrors. The MacPorts project further mirrors the distfiles in one location. The following mirrors should be queried automatically in the next release of MacPorts. If you're using v1.6, or the automatic mirror selection does not work, you can try the instructions at FetchFailures.
