This is an obscure problem, and one I have a workaround for, but will
thow it out anyhoo.
I have a laptop running WindozeNT, with the latest and greatest cvs
client (1.3 i think) built on it. It also has an ssh client "ttssh" that
runs with a terminal program "teraterm pro". This ssh client does port
Until recently I had a direct connection to the internet via modem to
ISP. I have to connect to a cvs server- but the only service it allows
coming in from the big bad world is ssh. So, I would fire up ttssh,
forward port 2401 on my laptop->port 2401 on server, set CVSROOT to
Now, I access the inet through netbsd using a simple ipnat translator,
and no filters in ipf.conf or hosts.allow.
Everything is working just as before, except:
typing "cvs up" in a directory causes a long pause, and then ttssh
panics and dies.
(typing "cvs up (filename)" still works just fine)
So, yeah there must be a bug in ttssh, it shouldn't just die on me. But
how can it tell the difference?
