We don't use pserver internally as most of the machines are over-secured, so
everything internally uses ssh. I can hit the internal CVS server from the
outside by simply changing the host name. 

>From your description I couldn't quite understand whether you have ssh
working from outside to inside. That's the first step. Once you can login
manually, the game is over.

Another alternative that you might check into is using ssh's port proxy
feature. Theoretically you can connect to the pserver port on your local
machine (as if CVS' pserver were running on the local machine) and use ssh
to securely proxy the connection past the firewall and to the real pserver
port on the real CVS server. I say theoretically since I've fiddled with
ssh's proxy feature, but I've not actually tried doing this with CVS. 

This, of couse, all this still requires ssh to be functional.
