   Thanks,
   I just missed it. I wasted my bandwidth by downloading it twice.

   Hi to all the members of the List.
   I am new to this list. But not new to FreeBSD. Twice I have tried to
   download 7.1 i386 dvd1 iso from 2 different ftp servers. But I am
   getting a totally different md5sum from the one listed in the website
   or ftp sites.
   Am I getting the right one?. The downloaded file for sure is not
   corrupt. Because I can unzip it,mount it and view the contents in it.
   Did anyone see the difference.
   The md5sum that I am getting is:
   7d56d43359d7b7e05c0d450bafb4c8fa  7.1-RELEASE-i386-dvd1.iso.gz
   (md5sum)
  
    

You've taken the md5 of the compressed gz file

  

   64e8fe534e2e185d1f897bb742e06a1aae830f2978cb6b8c339977460fd6dfd6
   7.1-RELEASE-i386-dvd1.iso.gz (sha256sum)
   The md5sum that is listed in the website is :
MD5 (7.1-RELEASE-i386-dvd1.iso) = bbb47ab60bda55270ddd9ff4f73b9dc8
  
    

This refers to the md5 of the uncompressed file

  

SHA256 (7.1-RELEASE-i386-dvd1.iso) = 303be4ce844f0cb18aa38a41988dc5fba960427dbc
c69263410308176cb5875f

Can anyone please confirm whether I am getting the right one.


  
    

You are getting the right one, simply decompress before checking, i.e.

gunzip 7.1-RELEASE-i386-dvd1.iso.gz
md5 7.1-RELEASE-i386.dvd1.iso
