I've done this a while ago, so bear with me.  You're using the correct
version of SSH1 (non-interactive) which is good.  My suggestion would be to
get the SSH client to connect first.  Are you asked for your password after
the 'Doing password authentication' line?  If so, this will never work with
WinCVS because there is no means for you to interact with SSH1 via WinCVS.
My SSH client just logs right in, no fuss at all.  When you generated your
public and private keys with ssh-keygen did you just select <ENTER> for both
password and confirmation?  If you enter a password while doing key
generation, it defeats the purpose of generating the keys so that WinCVS
doesn't get prompted for a password!   Also, make sure your %HOME% folder
contains the .ssh folder with your identity file. From a command prompt do
DIR "%HOME%\.ssh" and you should see the directory listing that contains
your identity file.

Hello everyone,

I have a WinCVS running here on my computer and a server running Unix

I have configured SSH as per many tutorials, set the environment variables
correctly, set CVS variables right, created keys and authorized them on the
server, and then I try to checkout a module in WinCVS, but I receive this:

cvs [checkout aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages if

I tried to setup ssh for no passwords needed but what happens is a box pops
up (black box) in the background whenever WinCVS connects to the host.

At least the host is working right. If I try to connect to the server
through ssh in command prompt I get the following problems:

SSH Version 1.2.14 [winnt-4.0-x86], protocol version 1.4.
Standard version.  Does not use RSAREF.
ssh_connect: getuid 0 geteuid 0 anon 0
Connecting to
Connection established.
Remote protocol version 1.99, remote software version OpenSSH_3.4p1
Waiting for server public key.
Received server public key (768 bits) and host key (1024 bits).
Host is known and matches the host key.
Initializing random; seed file C:\ssh-1_2_14-win32bin\home/.ssh/random_seed
IDEA not supported, using 3des instead.
Encryption type: 3des
Sent encrypted session key.
Received encrypted confirmation.
Doing password authentication.

I am fairly certain I am NOT suppoed to have to do password authentication.
Could anyody give me some idea how to fix this and get these files Checked
