I'm really rusty at that, but there's a document that sometimes helps me
out in these matters, that I found somewhere on the Net:
Which finds us:
Joey Hess's <email@example.com> "Anonymous CVS access via ssh", at
The XFree86 Project's "Anoncvs Via ssh setup in an UNIX-type environment"
(possibly inspired by Joey Hess's article, preceding), at
Functional Win9x [SSH] ports were not possible until late 1996, when Mark
Solinski <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote a fix to Win95's defective GetFileType
function, which balked on sockets: http://www.mcs.net/~markso/cvs/cvs95.html
Gordon Chaffee's patched CVS
1.9.10 utility, capable of using
SSH transport. You must set the
CVS_RSH environment variable to
the pathname of ssh.exe. Source
patch & binary. Licence unstated.
I hope some of those links help.
Cheers, Before enlightenment, caffeine.
