     3A list of supported CVS clients and configuration information is provided in the [wiki:"CVS#Features" Features] section of this page.  The following configuration settings are used to access a SourceForge.net-hosted CVS repository with a CVS client: 
     4 
     5    * '''Hostname:''' PROJECTNAME.cvs.sourceforge.net (PROJECTNAME is the project's UNIX name) 
     6    * '''Port:''' 2401 (anonymous :pserver: authentication) or 22 (developer :ext: authentication via SSH) 
     7    * '''Protocol:''' :pserver: for anonymous CVS, or :ext: for developers (with SSH for external authentication; export CVS_RSH=ssh) 
     8    * '''Repository Path:''' /cvsroot/PROJECTNAME (PROJECTNAME is the project's UNIX name) 
     9    * '''Username:''' 'anonymous' for anonymous CVS access or your SourceForge.net username for developer CVS access. 
     10    * '''Password:''' There is no password for anonymous CVS access (just hit the enter key when prompted for one). You must generate a SSH key for developer authentication. 
     11 
     12Firewalls and proxy servers may present a problem in using CVS. Workaround may be possible using this alternate configuration for developer (but not anonymous) access; contact your ISP or network administrator for assistance if you are having issues with anonymous or developer access and these workarounds do not function for your environment: 
     13 
     14    * '''Hostname:''' PROJECTNAME.cvs.sourceforge.net (PROJECTNAME is the project's UNIX name) 
     15    * '''Port:''' 443
