Actually that was the solution- many thanks!


 Actually, I am also trying
to do the same. I have a remote repository, behind a firewall, and I can
connect it to it
using command line cvs, e.g. by saying:
setenv CVSROOT :ext:address@hidden:~/cvs_repository

but then when I try to use cvs within emacs, I get the error:
/usr/bin/ssh-askpass could not be found.

ssh-askpass is actually in /usr/local/bin,
and I could not find how to tell emacs where to look
for ssh-askpass. Simple add-path to .emacs in the form of:

(setq load-path (cons "/usr/local/bin/" load-path))
did not help.

Trying the solution suggested by Andrew Taylor requires setting the
CVSROOT as :pserver:address@hidden:~/cvs_repository
however then cvs login does not work, as connection is rejected by robo
since it is a firewall.

I was wondering you know of any solution for this case.
