A slow network won't cause this.  There must be some other problem.
The cvsupd server times out a connection only if it has had no network
traffic for 15 minutes.  Even 1 byte every 15 minutes will keep it
from timing out.

Also, assuming you're grabbing the whole src tree, using separate
collections instead of src-all doesn't decrease the network traffic.
In fact, it increases the traffic slightly.  I should also mention
that using separate collections loads the servers more than using

Really if you want to sync with the whole src tree, using src-all is
the best in every way.
