SSH for CVSNT works just like CVS does, but to switch between two different
server insalls you need to use the env var CVS_SERVER. BTW it is NOT
possible to use ssh on a CVSNT server on windows without opening security
holes in the windows server, so windows CVSNT servers tend to use sspi or
These look like they've been generated by WinCVS. The correct format is:
:ssh:username at hostname:/cvsrepo
The CVSNT client accepts either format - since it is the server you are
changing and not the client these are irrelevant (they are used by the
client not the server).
