Thanks Jeffrey,

This will work and you can do the same thing on windows by using something
like ttssh to set up a ssh tunnel via ip forwarding. While it is easy to
explain the unix solution to our users, this would not be so easy for our
people using windows and mac clients.

If the cvs clients supported a SSL option, then everything would be much
easier for users. In fact, if cvs works using stunnel, then only the
client code base would need to be changed to provide SSL support.
