just a note - there's no reason you shouldn't be able to use cvs from
behind a firewall - I do it both at home and at work - your sys admin
should be able to configure it properly

for what it's worth, we use the gnatbox ( ) - I
use the free "light" version at home, and we use the full version at

it's not a software firewall like BlackICE and some others - it requires
a separate box - an old Pentium (or even 486) with 16MB RAM, a floppy,
and a couple of Ether cards are all that's needed (no hard drive) - it's
actually a stripped-down BSD kernel

anyway, just a point of possible interest...
