If you want to use ssh beyond the firewall, 'connect' is good for you.
It use SOCKS4/5 or https CONNECT method on both UNIX or Windows
platform. It is also good for CVS :ext: method, of course. But
'connect' program doesn't effects for CVS :pserver: method.
There's many patches for HTTP proxy (using HTTPS CONNECT method). And I
also have one easy patch which adds SOCKS4/5 support for :pserver:
method. If you want to use SOCKS from Windows, try this.
And see this page to know how to use
To use it, you must apply it to original cvs-1.11.5, then configure and
compile it. Or try binary I compiled.
## Note that it is for bare cvs-1.11.5. So it is not well considered
## around cygwin. (ex. binary/text mount, etc.)
## I'm using this patch since two years ago.
## I can't live without this (and 'connect').
