I just noticed that CVS_RSH throws a failiure if feed with a port argument
to ssh. In Rsync it works hapily.(Ok, it's called RSYNC_RSH, but you get
the point) Any chances to enable ports in CVS_RSH?

export CVS_RSH="ssh -p 4242"

I don't know about a mod to cvs being done, but you can make ssh take the port number with out putting it in the CVS_RSH export.

modify your ~/.ssh/config
#got to go to www and cvs on a specific port
Host www
        HostName www.domain.com
        Port 2323
Host cvs
        HostName www.domain.com
        Port 4242

then you should be able to
ssh foo@cvs
and go in on port 4242.

see `man ssh_config` for further details.

,cvs -t  -d :ext:foo@www.domain.com:/usr/cvs co .
