Do you mean a firewall?

Since you haven't told us what proxy/firewall you're running, that would
require quite a crystal ball.

That depends on what connection method you're using.  If you're using
:pserver:, the default port is whatever you've defined "cvspserver" as
(typically 2401).  If you're using :ext:, it's whatever port your
external command (e.g., RSH or SSH) uses.
