Hi, all.
        I've seen several more requests from people about using SSH with 
WinCVS, and wanted to re-post the info and directions on how to configure it. 
I'm about to sign off this list (trying to cut down my volume) and figured 
this one should make the rounds one more time. This one should probably go 
into the FAQ. (Might want to keep a copy handy for the next time people ask. 
I'm sure they will.)

        For the record, as far as I've been able to determine, WinCVS does 
*not* work with SSH2. It needs SSH1 on the Windows box, and you can configure 
your SSH2 server to handle both versions of the protocol. 

        Take care, and thanks for the reams of good info! :-)

        Yes, Jim. I did figure this out. Took a few weeks of head-banging,
but it works, and I was able to roll it out to a team of folks working on
both NT and Windows 2000 machines. I've been meaning to post to the list
with the URL, so I'll CC: them on this note.

Full instructions on how to configure the WinCVS program with SSH1 is here:

Peer review and corrections are most welcome.
