CVS and SSH V2

I am trying to setup CVS and SmartCVS to allow communication with each

I did not set up the CVS server, our admin team has done that.  So here
is what i have been doing:

I have installed SmartCVS and entered the following into for the
connection string:


using public/private key auth, with the private key file pointed to and
the public copied into authorized_keys.  When I test the connection
using smart cvs it seems fine, then when i click next to enter a
modules i get an "io error with details null".

I am really hitting a brick wall with this stuff I have never had to
setup CVS with SSH before, I have even tried previous clients of WinCVS
and get similiar setup, again I seem to be able to login to the server,
as its return command ran with 0, but when i try to checkout the module
i get a "ksh: cvs not found error"

This would imply its not loading the enviroment variables hences cvs is
not on the path, which i think it does not do for ssh, ie does not load
the .profile, but how do you get round this.  If indeed this is (a)

I am unsure if i am required to do anything on the client machine
either, i.e set any enviroment variables.

As you can see any help would be appreciated, and if anyone has done
this before i would very much like to talk to them!
