You don't need to allow incoming connections to port 5999; cvsup by default will multiplex traffic over the one outgoing connection. You can also connect through a SOCKS proxy server (but not an HTTP proxy) if your company has one. If your firewall blocks all outgoing TCP connects, then you are probably stuck. -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
