Edit: Disregard this post. My iptables ruleset was blocking the port used by cvs. After releasing the ruleset, I was able to pull down from cvs without a problem. Thanks stevieg. :)

Original Post:
I haven't been able to check out from CVS for quite some time. Perhaps I'm doing something incorrectly, but I'm almost positive that I've heard others complain of the CVS being down, so I thought I'd poke in and see what the deal is (if there is a deal)? :P

On a linux box (FC3), through ssh, I'm running the commands given on

$ export CVSROOT=''
$ cvs login
$ cvs co livejournal

The export performs correctly, but after executing "cvs login" and entered a blank password, the login hangs and eventually times out. I receive the following error:

cvs [login aborted]: connect to failed: Connection timed out

I'm attempting to update the code on my site. In the past, I've updated files manually, but have neglected an update for so long that this method of updating would take HOURS. I'd much rather pull down the latest code from cvs and plug things in where they need to go.

Any information/advice/suggestions?
