Larry I'm using WinCVS. I checked the option "check for an alternate rsh name" = c:\cvs\ssh2.exe
I tried:
c:\cvs\ssh2   address@hidden
and it works

If you're using WinCVS, then setting CVSROOT does nothing, unless you've set it inside WinCVS. WinCVS clobbers most useful environment variables, including CVSROOT and HOME.

        Try this:

        1)  Pick the menu item Create\Checkout module...

2) Under "module name and path on the server", you want "bless". Set the local folder as desired.

3) Click the "General" tab. Set authentication to "ssh". Click the "settings" button next to the authentication chooser and point it to your ssh executable. Set "Path" to "/cvs", "Host address" to "pippo", "User name" to "joe", and CVSROOT to ":ext:address@hidden:/cvs".

4) Click the "Globals" tab. Set what you want - I recommend the auto logout.

        Clicking "OK" should now get you your sandbox (I hope).
