Looks like the server is down:

$ export CVSROOT=freebsdanoncvs at
$ cvs checkout -rRELENG_7 src
ssh: connect to host port 22: Connection refused
cvs [checkout aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages if any)

This works:

$ export CVSROOT=anoncvs at
$ cvs checkout -rRELENG_7 src

Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes
