CVS Download: Timeout Error

MonsieurFugu
Hi OpenBSD forum,

I'm new to OpenBSD and I'm running into an issue downloading the CVS
libraries and I cannot figure out the problem.

I've downloaded the libs before but the vm I was using got corrupted, and
after following the same steps as before I keep getting this error:

host$ cvs -qd [hidden email]:/cvs checkout -rOPENBSD_6_3 -P
src
ssh: connect to host anoncvs.fr.openbsd.org port 22: Operation timed out
cvs [checkout aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages if
any)

I've gone through all the steps on this tutorial
(https://www.openbsd.org/anoncvs.html) and tried multiple mirrors but to no
avail. I've disabled the firewall in case that was the issue but it fixed
nothing. I'm able to use the ping command, however traceroute doesn't seem
to work. I can provide more info if needed.

Does anyone know how I can fix this?

Cheers.

source code, not libraries...but whatever.

pretty clear: something is blocking SSH traffic (port 22) between your
computer and the CVS mirrors you tried.  No SSH, no CVS over SSH.

"the" firewall.  Which "the" firewall? :)

So...sounds like a lot of things are blocked.

Unblock port 22?  Or more likely, move to a non-port 22 blocking
network.  Lots of businesses block port 22 outbound, which you need.

Nick.

Thanks for the reply,

Yeah I thought it was something to do with the ports but I'm honestly not
great with networking at the best of times, let alone on an OS that's new to
me.

Sure, I'm sorry I misspoke a few times there- I meant the source code and I
used the disable PF command which I thought might have been interfering with
it but it didn't work anyway.

Thank you for the help, I changed my network to my phone tethering and it
worked perfectly- I didn't realise that a lot of businesses block port 22 :P

Cheers dude, you're a lifesaver x)
