370 If you're behind a firewall that doesn't permit 371 If you're behind a firewall that doesn't permit
371 rsync traffic, then you can instead download the daily 372 rsync traffic, then you can use <c>emerge-webrsync</c> which will fetch
372 /usr/portage snapshots from 373 and install a Portage snapshot for you through regular HTTP.
374 <c>emerge-webrsync</c> uses <c>wget</c> to download, so proxy is fully
375 supported.

378 If you cannot do this either, you can manually download a snapshot
373 <uri>http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/gentoo/snapshots/</uri>. Just unpack 379 from <uri>http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/gentoo/snapshots/</uri>.

375 the <path>/usr</path> directory. 381 your current <path>/usr/portage</path> so that outdated ebuilds don't
382 stay available on your system. However, you might want to put
383 <path>/usr/portage/distfiles</path> somewhere safe if you don't want to
384 lose all your sourcecode.
