    Hi!
          Please help me with my security consideration.  I am setting up a CVS repository to be access through internet remotely.   I wan to use SSH to encrypt all the messages.

         In JavaCVS, when I try to setup a repository, the connection type can be either internal SSH or external SSH.  What do they mean? What is the difference.   I setup the host, username and repository path and try to connect.  If I choose internal ssh, there is no problem.  If I choose external ssh, I can't.   Does it mean choosing internal ssh will make all the message encrypted?   That is, the server transmit public key to the JavaCVS and the JavaCVS will encode the message using the public key?
