You can also try cvsup on This uses some optimization over rsync for the respository files.

Heres my situation.  I have a CVS server that is located behind a

modules in it, to a CVS "server" outside the firewall.  What are my
options ? The firewall allows all connections out but blocks connections
that originate from the outside.
As I  understand CVSup it does a pull from the master cvs server so that
method would be out for me.  Are there any replication methods that use
a "push" from the CVS master ?

We need a bit more information before the question can really be answered...
Q) Do you need to be able to commit to the replicated copy or is it read only?
     Read only

If don't need the outer RO server to be up to date in real time with the real server then you might use a periodic rsync or rcp from the real server to the RO server.

If you need it to be "near real time" updated, you should ask about how those update methods above might be tied in with a commitinfo type script, probably similar to Keeping a checked out copy[1].
