Source Update problems

I've been trying to update source, and ports late and I can't connect.
I keep getting a message saying that connection is refused:

# make update
>>> Running /usr/local/bin/cvsup
Parsing supfile "/usr/share/examples/cvsup/stable-supfile"
Connecting to
Cannot connect to Connection refused

There's nothing to prevent this.  I don't block anything, and the only
thing that changed was that I'm trying to make this same machine my
wireless gateway as well.  I think the only thing I added was:

options         BRIDGE

I have the following in my /etc/make.conf:


At one point I had a different CVS server listed, but I got the same
message.  Does anybody have any sort of ideas?  I can't even install
packages.  That BRIDGE option couldn't have done this, could it?  I can
access anything else with no problems.

Thanks for the suggestions.
