Does the proxy server allow https:// connections? If so, then it *is*
letting your client make direct TCP connections to the outside world,
though generally https proxies only allow you to connect to port 443 (the
default https port). There's a patch for cvs at
http://www.cvshome.org/cyclic/cvs/dev-http.txt that allows you to connect
through such proxies. Disclaimer: haven't used it myself.
