Hi all,

I've downloaded a tarball (v.1.4.1) and want to use cvs to get the
updates to the newest milestone release. Following the instructions on
the webpages, this is done automagically from the unpacked
directory using to command:

cvs -z3 checkout -PA mozilla/

however, I have been getting an error as follows:

cvs [checkout aborted]: connect to failed:
Connection timed out

A straight cvs login (anonymous) did not work either.

Unsuccessful pinging tells me is not
responding. Is the server offline, or should I be using a different

Any help appreciated. I would like to build mozilla from source....
