seems like cvsup1.freebsd.org is down, have you tried any other
cvsup server?

are you running a cvsup server? if you just would like to update
your ports-collections this is _not_ necessary.

can you telnet to port 5999 on cvsup1.freebsd.org (or any other
official cvsup server)? if yes, cvsup should work. if no, you 
need a plug-gw (fwtk, ipfw, pf ...)

by the why:

telnet cvsup1.freebsd.org 5999
Connected to cvsup1.freebsd.org.
Escape character is '^]'.
! Access limit exceeded; try again later
Connection closed by foreign host.

cvsup1 is reachable again.
