Ok. So I turned off pserver, removed the passwd file it used, made sure I have an account on the server that I can ssh to, made sure I was in the cvs group and that the repository has 770 plus setgid permissions, and that my account is able to write into it. On another linux box, where I'd been testing the previous (and working) pserver connection, I removed the .cvspass file, and verified that I can, indeed log into the other machine via ssh.

I made sure that CVS_RSH is set to ssh and that I changed pserver to ext in the CVSROOT variable, which is set to:


When I try to do a cvs update however, I get:

cvs [update aborted]: connect to failed: Connection refused

Why is it still trying to access pserver? Shouldn't it just be ssh'ing into spot and then issuing cvs commands?

Sorry to follow-up my own post, but I just discovered that 'cvs update' fails, while 'cvs -d :ext:address@hidden:/home/cvs update' works. So the question now, is, why won't the short version work?
