It's just a label, it doesn't matter which machine you use it from. I
generated a single public/proviate key pair and moved it to all the
machines (networks) that I want to ssh out from. That way I only have to
put one entry in the suthorized hosts file of each machine I want to ssh
in to.

You might want to consider setting up sshd to allow RSA authorization
only, and not fall back to password authentication. That really is the
most secure. Try using ssh -v to get it working, only then run cvs though

Ditto. CVS through ssh works fine for me, down a modem at each end with
dynamic dns (OK, it could be faster ...)
