"Best" is a subjective word.  rsh is by far the simplest way to go.  ssh is
pretty simple, too.

Usually (always?) the CVS server doesn't run as a daemon.  It'll run with each
invocation of CVS from the client side.

All you should have to do is have the clients set CVSROOT properly (eg
address@hidden:/path/to/cvsroot) and take care of how they can log into
the server without having to supply a password (eg .rhosts or ssh-agent).
