If you can use ssh to get through your company proxy, you can set the
CVS_RSH environment variable to ssh (or ssh2), and use the :ext: method
to access the server.

If you need to use ssh with options or parameters, you can even set
CVS_RSH to a shell script that calls ssh with those parameters.

What form of proxy is it? What type(s) of proxy(s) is(are) WinCVS
supporting? There're a lot out there, without more information it's
impossible to actually say 'oh, you can use blah'.
