I am a newbie to cvs and I am having problems logging in as a client
from my work machine (WinNT).  The server I am logging into is running
Linux and I have no trouble connecting from home (using WinCVS or
Forte For Java's built in client).  I am DEFINITELY behind a firewall
at work that I have no control over.  I can telnet to the ip address
(port 23?) and connect via ftp (port 21?).

I have thoroughly investigated this problem on the web and have not
seen anyone with a good solution.  One "troubleshooting" technique
I've seen to try is to telnet to the port using "telnet ipaddress
port" which for me is "telnet 2401".  When I do this, I
get a long wait period followed by a "Connection failed!" dialog from
the Telnet program that is automatically launched by WinNT from the
command prompt.  Do this mean I'm out of luck?

Posted below are the environment variables I set with a batch file and
the error message I'm getting.  Thanks in advance for any insight
y'all can provide!
