I don't have a /usr/share/examples/etc/defaults/make.conf, but I have a /usr/share/examples/etc/make.conf. But it doesn't have a FETCH_ENV line in it.

I'm sure someone has been successful in running cvsup behind a firewall? After all, don't all these tools use ftp indrectly?

Thanks.

For fetch via proxy see:
/usr/share/examples/etc/defaults/make.conf

Copy this file to /etc and edit the FETCH_ENV to point to your proxy

For cvsup, if you only have access via the proxy server, you can ftp the
entire cvs tree (not efficient). I would ask your admin to either setup
a local mirror , or add a dynamic rule for outgoing cvsup connections.
