I have been having a lot of trouble using the provided
instructions for downloading the gnuplot 4.1 source
code from CVS to compile on my AIX system. Basically I
am either getting "cvs [login aborted]: connect to
cvs.sourceforge.net(66.35.250.207):14306 failed:
Connection timed out" errors from AIX, "cvs [login
aborted]: end of file from server (consult above
messages it any)" on linux, and "cvs [checkout
aborted]: Error reading from server
cvs.sourceforge.net: 0" from windows. I am running,
"cvs
-d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/gnuplot
login", but have alternately tried setting CVSROOT and
simply running 'cvs login' but I get the same error
messages.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated as there
are features in this new version that I would like to
do some testing on.

Thanks

    You're asking the wrong people. We don't operate the CVS
    server which is terminating those connections ---
    SourceForge.net does that. Ever since March 30th, SF.net
    has had serious problems with their CVS servers. Anonymous
    CVS was disabled for that reason. See the site status
    (linked through the yellow ball in the top right corner of
    every SF.net page).
