We're not using the CVS pserver. I've used ssh tunneling (port proxy) for
other applications, but not for pserver. I presume that ssh's tunnelling
abilities will allow pserver to be used. 

As for passwordless logins with asymmetric keys, you have to create the
public/private key pair. Use the ssh-keygen program (Linux) or puttygen
(Windows). The private half goes in ~/.ssh and the public half is copied
into the remote machine's ~/.ssh/authorized_keys. Leave the password blank. 

You may have to ensure that the ~/.ssh directory denies world and group
access (chmod 700). ssh may refuse to work if this directory is group or
world readable.

I stumbled around a lot until I figured it out. Once I figured it out, it's
fairly straightforward. 

If you need to do it for a Windows client, I have my personal notes at
under the heading "Setting Up the Cryptographic Keys."
