CVS access under non-transparent proxy

I’ve been looking anywhere the answer for this question, and finally I found the solution.

For Ubuntu users, update your cvs to cvsnt:

# sudo apt-get install cvsnt

Then supply the username and proxy password like this:

# cvs -z3 ‘-d:pserver;proxy=your.proxy.com;proxyport=8080;proxyuser=your_proxy_username;proxypassword=your_proxy_password:repo_user@repo.com:/module’ co -P module

Here’s the real example:

# cvs -z3 ‘-d:pserver;proxy=proxy.mycompany.com;proxyport=8080;proxyuser=kunilkuda;proxypassword=abc123:anonymous@cvs.savannah.nongnu.org:/sources/ltib’ co -d ltib -P module

Hope that helps
