Thanks for the pointer. Thats kinda neat, but I don't have a
transparent proxy here, only an HTTP and FTP proxy server.
Applications need to know to connect first to this proxy server in
order to get outside the firewall. Web browsers come with this
support built-in, as do a couple of terminal apps like PuTTY, but this
is not built into the normal CVS or SSH command line apps.

It looks like I can do what I want by combining PuTTY and CVS or TortoiseCVS:

I'll try this out when I get some time.
