Not sure that I understand. Is the problem that your outgoing port 80
connections are intercepted by a proxy server which mangles them? If
so, how about port 443 (https)?

Or something else?

For me, with no firewalling at all, it works to add these two lines to
~/.ssh/config:

Host cvs-ssh.sourceforge.net
Port 443

Then I can use cvsroot :/cvsroot/jungerl
