I'm now trying to get the repository on the co-lo working, but I'm confused.
ssh works fine and I have "CVS_RSH ssh" in my .tcshrc. When I connect to the
server with ssh it asks for a password, but :ext: seems to not use
passwords. How is this secure? But I can't connect anyway:
"cvs -d :ext:address@hidden:/var/lib/cvsroot import cvstest
cvstest_project ver_0-1"
returns (after a pause of several seconds)
" Connection refused"
