Not really sure. Ports 21 (FTP) and 80 (HTTP) are definitely open, but the
rest are hard to determine. I have no problem with most IM clients, either
(IRC doesn't work, but AIM, Y!, ICQ and MSN all seem to have no problems.)
I've used the ftp port for a lot of things, perhaps we can try that one? If
necessary, I can have a particular user/pass to protect that port.

Solution: http://cvsgrab.sourceforge.net, designed for exactly your
problem. It parses the HTML from ViewCVS and gets the files over HTTP.
