Accessing the tree from behind a firewall?

Ok, I'm stumped.

I'd like to get read access to the Linux kernel source tree on, so I can keep up with the latest PowerPC changes for some
embedded work I'm doing with the MPC855/860T. Ultimately, I hope to be able to
contribute, so I may need write access too, but that's a little down the track.

My problem is that I'm behind a firewall, so I can't just use cvs pserver
directly. I could use an ssh tunnel through our firewall if
or supported it, but I haven't been able to get that
to work either. I haven't used anonymous cvs before, so perhaps I'm missing
something very, very obvious.

Can anyone please tell me if it's possible to get access to the cvs repository
from behind a firewall?
