I am running WinCvs Build 1. on my client

When I try to use SSH I get the fallowing:

NEW CVSROOT: address@hidden:/usr2/cvsroot (ssh authentication)
cvs -d :ext:address@hidden:/usr2/cvsroot init bash: cvs: command not found
Logged in with SSH Terminal I get :
address@hidden hasse]$ /usr/local/bin/cvs
Usage: cvs [cvs-options] command [command-options-and-arguments]
This shows that cvs in the path .

Often an interactive shell will get a different path to a non-interactive one. You might find that if you manually run 'ssh <host> printenv' that your path setting doesn't include /usr/local/bin, which would explain the above error from bash.

I don't know how you tell WinCVS to do this, but on command-line cvs you can set the environment variable CVS_SERVER on the client machine to the full pathname of the cvs binary on the server, and it will work.
