Setting CVSRSH (to anything) makes no difference. If I run:

cvs -d :ext:address@hidden:/cvsroot/pdl co PDL

then I still get:

------- start ----------------------------
Runs commands on remote hosts running the RSH service.

  host            Specifies the remote host on which to run command.
  -l username     Specifies the user name to use on the remote host. If
                  omitted, the logged on user name is used.
  -n              Redirects the input of RSH to NULL.
  command         Specifies the command to run.

Did you mean 'CVS_RSH' ? If I set CVS_RSH along the lines that you suggested
(tried a few variations) then I get:

cvs [checkout aborted]: cannot start server via rsh: No such file or

(This is using cvs-1.11.19. I might reinstall WinCVS and try with it later.
Thanks for the input - I'll certainly keep in mind that, at some stage, I
might want to set that environment variable.)
