You don't need CVS_RSH because you're not using an authenticated login. I
would use CVS_RSH because I have a local account to write to the

It looks to be port blocked somewhere because I can (and did) pull down the
source code with the 2401 port for the example above, except with

there. I suspect it might be UCLA; they installed a Cisco PIX recently.
