A while back, I was able to ssh to another system on our net and it
only ask for my password. Now, it asks for the passphrase. I have
created a key pair as part of the setup for WinCVS.

It looks like I'll need to read up on the SSH docs to understand the
ways to set this up.

Ideally, I want the security of not sending passwords in clear text,
rsh does I guess, and I don't want to have to type in my pass phrase for
each and every CVS command as it is a pain.

I'll check into that, it looks like it might be what I want to do.

Thanks for the responses, I think I know where I need to look (and
what I need to learn more about).
