I cannot initiate any direct connection on any port to the outside
world.  From the perspective of my workstation, EVERY port is blocked
by the firewall ... yes, even 443.  My only access (other than email)
is through a proxy server which only accepts HTTP-style requests
(http://, https://, ftp://, etc.).  It doesn't, unfortunately, accept
the CONNECT directive, which eliminates the CVS "dev-http" patch as
well as other HTTP tunneling mechanisms based on that strategy.
