abs times out, but pacman works

I'm at work, behind a firewall and proxy.  Pacman works fine since I configured teh gatweay setting in rc.conf, but "abs" times out when I try to run it.  I successfully did a "pacman -S cvsup wget".  Is there something else I need to do to get abs to work?

Or is there a place where I need to set the proxy for abs?  I tried to do "man abs", and it gave me help on the absolute value function, lol.

Re: abs times out, but pacman works

abs is a wrapper script around cvsup. So, try the man page for cvsup. I have no experience, though, getting cvsup through a proxy. It's using port 5999, I think, and a non-proxy firewall can usually handle this protocol (at least mine can ;-) )
