Subject Re: Anonymous CVS & SSH tunneling
Date Fri, 03 Aug 2001 18:12:08 GMT

from a unix like environment:
export CVS_RSH=ssh
export CVS_RSH=/path/to/ssh
(if it isn't in your path)
set the CVSROOT

or use the command line
cvs -d checkout jakarta-ant

from a windoze enviroment
use wincvs or use the cvs.exe commanline
set CVS_RSH=/path/to/ssh
cvs -d checkout jakarta-ant

this gets pretty cumbersome because one has to supply the password for 
every request.
(cvs login works only for the pserver protocol)
so the work around is to use RSA style authentication for ssh vis ssh-agent 
or via the method described
