Its been over a few weeks now after installing freebsd 5.0 and still can not run cvsupdate and portupgrade on one my servers.
We are behind a firewall and proxy server. All traffic to the internet uses a proxy server for connection. I have been searching for ways to try to get the cvs working from behind the firewall and no one seems to know how to do it. Or at least I can not find the solution. The box has full internet access, but I simply can not have a ping to outside. i.e ping www.yahoo.com and or any server on the net would not work. but netscape and browsers can get out. Can any one suggest a solution? I cann't think that there are so many people out there asking for this and there is simply no way to do it. BSD51# cvsup -P m /root/ports-supfile Unknown host "cvsup6.FreeBSD.org" Tried on a windows machine cvs -d :pserver;proxy=22.214.171.124;proxyport=8080:[EMAIL PROTECTED]:/ login cvs [login aborted]: Proxy server 126.96.36.199 does not support HTTP tunnelling Do I have the defaultrouter in rc.conf? yes and again I can get to the internet via browsers fine. ______________________________________________________________________ Post your free ad now! http://personals.yahoo.ca _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
