SOCKS help needed

Registered
It's been a while since people asked, and recieved no (public) answers, so I guess I'll ask again.

I am wanting to use terminal CVS and its GUI CVL as well as being able to FTP / SSH etc from my Mac at work.

Unfortunately we use a Socks firewall so even though I have set up the socks part of the System Preferences I have no access.

If anyone has had any luck with this, I would really appreciate some help...

Sincerely, Ben

OK, time for me to talk to my self...

I was pointed to http://www.taiyo.co.jp/~gotoh/ssh/connect.html by a colleague.

Once compiling the available source code (which was no problem) I added

setenv CVS_RSH /usr/bin/ssh
to my ~/.tcshrc file

and
Host cvs.apache.org
ProxyCommand connect -S socks-gw.local.com %h %p
to ~/.ssh/config (as described in the connect page) I was happily connecting to apache.

Hope other people find it handy, Ben
