~$grep cvsup /etc/services
cvsup 5999/tcp CVSup # CVSup file
cvsup 5999/udp CVSup # CVSup file
You need these ports for outgoing. If you keep state on your
connections, you don't have to use passive cvsup, but if you need it or
want it for some reason, you'll have to pick a port range for incoming
passive connections and specify those ports with -P in the cvsup args.
See cvsup (1) for more details.
