• Having issue with CVS timeouts

    From Toolman@VERT/TCCBBS to Digitalman on Friday, September 06, 2019 04:54:18
    Rob,

    I am trying to update my synchronet from CVS and no matter the commnad line that I use they all timeout also have tried with sudo and get the same message. The error message that I get is:
    cvs [checkout aborted]: connect to cvs.synchro.net(71.95.196.36):2401 failed: Connection timed out.

    The command that I use is taken right from http://wiki.synchro.net/dev:cvs
    The CLI use was cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@cvs.synchro.net:/cvsroot/sbbs co src-sbbs3 lib

    So the OS the Debain 9.9 kernel 4.9.0-9-amd64

    cvs update -d src 3rdp
    cvs [update aborted]: connect to cvs.synchro.net(71.95.196.36):2401 failed: Connection timed out

    Any insight that you might have would be help full.

    Thanks,

    Toolman

    Looks like you're having some network issue connecting to TCP port 2401 at cvs.synchro.net. It's up and listening:

    $ nc cvs.synchro.net 2401
    test
    cvs [pserver aborted]: bad auth protocol start: test

    ... so you have something between your client and my CVS server that is not allowing that connection. That would be a networking problem for you to resolve.

    In the mean-time, you can try to use cvs-mirror.synchro.net (instead of cvs.synchro.net) or just download the tarballs instead of using CVS:
