The CVS user name in CVSROOT/passwd only applies to :pserver: access.
:ext: relies on the authentication method you set up for $CVS_RSH - in
this case SSH.  SSH effectively launches a local CVS process on the
remote machine which acts as a surrogate server.  There are as few CVS
imposed restrictions at that point as for access to a local root, the
assumption being, again, that you have secure accounts configured via
SSH.  Please read the following section of hte manual for more:
<https://www.cvshome.org/docs/manual/cvs-1.11.17/cvs_2.html#SEC26>.

You might be looking for something like an SSH tunnel for pserver
access.  Not sure if there is anything in the manual, but you might
try the FAQ and the mailing list archives.

Cheers,

Derek
