This is covered here:

You might need to set up RhostsRSA authentication. Plain rhosts is
considered non-secure.

Another good link, is, of course,, which
discusses various methods of authentication and +/- of them.

: We have a lot of source code that needs to be kept secure.  Right now,

: Now we'd like to be able to use CVS over considerably longer

: I recommended setting CVS_RSH=ssh, and was told that the users

: 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?
