reading your reply now with a fresh head makes so much more sense, which
my reply doesn't .. oh well, I'll try again =)

I'm using ssh for connection using
export CVS_RSH=ssh
cvs -d:ext:<developer>@<server>:/<repository>

Of course, on the CLIENT HOME, the .ssh file is needed.
What I was wondering about is what the users HOME on the SERVER is used.
Nothing, I presume?

I had a problem with the cvs client in Eclipse. For some reason, it needs
the SERVER HOME for some reason I'm not going to ask you guys since it's
all Eclipse specific.

Oh well, thank you!
