Eclipse, CVS & SourceForge

I've recently tried opening up a CVS project from SourceForge through Eclipse. It's been a loooong time since I used CVS last, but I think that I set up all the parameters correctly in Eclipse using the documentation that SourceForge provides. I haven't been able to get it to work, but I have a sneaking suspicion that it's due to proxies and firewalls in place where I work more than a problem with the setup. Has anyone sucessfully set up Eclipse to use the CVS from SourceForge? Any pointers/tutorials/links would be appreciated!

Were you trying to connect anonymously? Sourceforge's pserver access has been painfully unreliable recently.

The connection type should be extssh. The host is and the repository path should be /cvsroot/"project_name". Let me know if that helps.

I agree. Here's the link:
