We are planning to migrate the mode of authentication to pserver.

Why?  :ext: is generally consider superior to :pserver:, particularly
when used with ssh rather than rsh.

Not all systems implement rsh the same way, as there was never any real spec. As such, the OP may be working with systems whose rsh's do not interoperate. If there is no need to secure the client/server connections, then pserver makes a nice low maintenance solution, and is sure to work on any machine on which a CVS client can be compiled.
