Hi Jeff,

The cvshome.org version of CVS is NOT the CVSNT version. They have
similarities in that they were forked from a common code base in the
past, but they are different animals these days. I suggest you may wish
to go to www.cvsnt.org if you need/want help with that program.

That said, you will need an sshd server running on your cvs server machine.

(It looks like http://tech.erdelynet.com/cygwin-sshd.html will tell you
how to setup an SSHD server on a Windows box. You will need that, or
follow the directions for OpenSSH installation if you are using a un*x
or linux box.) Some problems may arise in setting up your SSHD server
(see http://archive.erdelynet.com/ssh-l/2002-09/msg00014.php for examples).

Next you need to tell your CVS client that you want to use the :ext:
protocol for your CVSROOT. Something like
:ext:user@server/path/to/cvs/root (see
http://www.tortoisecvs.org/faq.html#ssh). At least for TortoiseCVS, the
ssh client is NOT builtin, so you will need to get Putty or some other
CVS client on the box.

If you want to use the cvshome.org version of cvs.exe, it does not come
with a builtin SSH implementation. You will also need to set the CVS_RSH
environment variable to be "ssh" or the path to your ssh exectuable.

        Good luck,
        -- Mark
