Port forwarding problem 17 Years, 4 Months ago  
I'm using 2.13rc29, because of the issue with 2.12 reading private keys properly (had the issue).

I'm trying to connect wincvs using the pserver protocol to a cvs server running on a redhat linux 7.1 server.

If I use wincvs directly to cvs through pserver things work fine.

So I establish my ssh2 session to the linux box. I have a forward defined which is:

Forward Local Port: 8888
to remote machine: blah.mydomain.com port: 2401

2401 is the cvs pserver port.

In wincvs I've configured cvs to use a proxy, connecting to localhost port: 8888

When I attempt to connect with wincvs I get this error: cvs [login aborted]: Proxy server localhost does not support HTTP tunnelling

Am I off the track here? Any help appreciated.

When you forward localhost:8888 to blah.blah.com:2401, you can configure cvs to connect to localhost:8888 in the same way as blah.com:2401. There is no difference, no additional proxy settings that need to be made. It is a transparently forwarded port.

I don't use cvs or pserver, so I may not know the particulars of what you're doing, but from what I've read, it can be done.

After thinking about your reply, I went back, and removed the proxy setting, set up a forward from localhost:2401 to theserver:2401 and reconfigured wincvs to talk to wincvs:2401.

It connected on the first try. Now I simply have to secure pserver. Thanks for a great product.

No problem.

I'm glad it works for you. I *love* port forwarding and all the nifty things you can do with it.
