I personally use rsync. All our machines have the r* command disabled, so I
have to use 'rsync -essh' to ensure rsync uses ssh for transport. This works
great for remote hosts over insecure networks. I've pretty much stopped
using tar+ftp. 

Be sure the read the man pages for the difference between

rsync -av -essh /var/cvs newserver:/new/cvsroot/path 


rsync -av -essh /var/cvs/ newserver:/new/cvsroot/path 

(note the trailing slash on "/var/cvs/"). 

Remember: every member of your 'target audience' also owns a broadcasting
station. These 'targets' can shoot back.
