For :ext:, the user needs their own account and they will be running

'server' argument.

Yes, I knew they needed their own accounts. As for how the connect, they will be doing so from Windows boxen, from within the Eclipse IDE software. It may internally do as you say above, but that's not really what is concerning me.

Are you saying I have to give up the feature of having all user sessions running as cvs, if we use extssh? I would prefer not to have files in the repository owned by the various developers, but have owner and group be cvs, which I currently have with pserver.

>From the way you describe how users connect when using extssh, it sounds like both the login passwords and the subsequent file transfers will all be encrypted, yes? That is what I'm looking to have, while keeping everything as owner & group cvs.
