    Unhappy FreeBSD 9.1 Packages not found

    Hi, I have just installed the 64 bit (amd64) version of FreeBSD 9.1 in a VM in VirtualBox. I am not a newbie to FreeBSD, Linux, or Unix in general. It's great, but I have one massive problem. When I try and install a package (e.g. pkg_add -r packagename), it cannot find the package. It DOES have internet connectivity (I have successfully pinged www.google.com). I went to the site it is trying to get to in a web browser, and found that the folder it is trying to get to does not exist. Is there any way to change the folder that pkg_add gets the packages from on the FTP server, so that it gets them from the 9.0_release folder rather than the non-existent 9.1_release fi? Your help is greatly appreciated!
