Please send future requests of this type to address@hidden rather than
address@hidden  You are much more likely to receive a timely and
correct response.

Anyhow, unless the administrator of the CVS server you are attempting to
reach makes the data available in some other manner, your only options here
are to poke a hole through your firewall on port 2401 or only attempt CVS
access from some sort of gateway machine.  I much prefer the former option.
Ask your system administrator how to accomplish this.

If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of
property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, which an
individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to himself; but the

moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession of everyone, and
the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it.  Its peculiar character, too,

That ideas should freely spread from one to another over the globe, for the
moral and mutual instruction of man, and improvement of his condition, seems
have been peculiarly and benevolently designed by nature, when she made them,

like fire, expansible over all space, without lessening their density at any
point, and like the air in which we breathe, move, and have our physical
incapable of confinement or exclusive appropriation. Inventions then cannot,
nature, be a subject of property.
