I tried the other USA mirror to no avail. Same problem.
I also tried this from multiple locations (work and home) and at various
times during the day. All with the same problem.
I'd really like to avoid setting up a local CVS archive and I don't think
that FTP'ing the sources is the most elegant solution.
Any ideas why I would get connection timeouts? Perhaps my company and ISP
firewalls are blocking a port? Is there any way for me to diagnose a
connection to the anoncvs servers?
