How can I connect through firewall?
NetBeans 5.x and later
If any CVS operation fails, an error dialog displays allowing you to configure proxy settings. You can either use SOCKS (preferred) or HTTPS proxy to connect to a CVS server. Additionally, you can define a proxy server before checkout:
- In the first step of the CVS Checkout wizard, click the Proxy Configuration button.
- In the Proxy Configuration dialog that displays, set the proxy host and port number.
Build-in CVS client can use SOCKS v5 proxy. Command line clients are under your full control, e.g. on UNIX machines you can run versioning executables prefixed with /usr/bin/runsocks, on all platforms you can use SSH tunnels, etc.
