Re: Secure remote CVS

I think this is a ssh issue.  Have you tried using ssh-agent?

In the past, I've been able to configure CVS to use SSH in such a way as not to
experience the problems you describe, so, it is possible, although I may have
forgotten details of this implementation.


We have a lot of source code that needs to be kept secure.  Right now,
we're using a LAN protected from the outside world by a firewall,
and that seems to be working.

Now we'd like to be able to use CVS over considerably longer
distances, securely.

I recommended setting CVS_RSH=ssh, and was told that the users
then had to type in their password for every file being transferred,
and that is more typing than they're willing to put up with.

We're not about to use straight pserver, for security reasons.

There has got to be a way to log into a remote server securely,
but I don't know enough about the networking involved.

Any pointers?
