Hello all, I'm trying to use FreeBSD 5.2.1 in my computer behind a domestic ADSL modem-router. At home, we have 2 computers, 1 is a server and the router uses NAT with some port redirections; and the 2nd one is my workstation, where I use NetBSD, Linux and FreeBSD 5.2.1.
The problem is the next (and it is very very weird): a) When I installed FreeBSD 5.2.1; i also installed cvsup-without-gui (latest version) and I tried to update my src and my ports, but the program was stopped at these lines: Establesing multiplexed-mode Runnig... That's all, I couldn't download any delta. b) If I try to use traditional CVS, I can use cvs checkout to download the entire source tree, or even ports tree. But, once I have got all the tree, if I go into the tree (both src and ports) and I try to cvs update, the program is stopped at the beginning and it doesn't download anything. c) Even all, I played with cvsup -P port (openning that port in my firewall), -P - (for passive connections as CVS uses), -P a, and -P m. But none above worked, so I'm frustrated. The very very weird thing is that I said, I yes can download trough 'cvs co src'; but once I've got all the src tree, if I get into and I try: 'cvs update'; the cvs establishes the both passive connections with the server but nothing is downloaded; and I get a Timed Out Connection in about 10 minutes. I can use deltas because I use normal FTP connections, but I prefer pretty much the cvsup due to confortability and ease. These problems didn't happen with FreeBSD 4.7-RELEASE nor 4.8-RELEASE, but yes with 5.X branches. I use FreeBSD since 2 years ago and I'm sure there's no errors in supfiles even I used CVS and it is not working. Can anyone help me please? P.S.- I was reading a lot of mails about problems with cvsup behind firewall, but all people solved them openning any port in firewall and then using -P port with cvsup. But it doesn't works for me, I open the port but the server doesn't connect back to me (using above port). -- /*** mkd ***/ Claudio M.
