Sorry Dirk, I guess I wasn't clear the first time. The CVS_RSH variable that I
referred to IS the program option in jCVS, not the Linux environment variable.
As per Mike's suggestion, I tried running tcpdump and confirmed that port 22 is
being used. I wasn't able to learn anything useful from the log, though.
The 514 mentioned in a previous post is not my UID. I have confirmed that it is
the default port (in com.ice.jcvsii.default.properties) that jCVS tries to use
with the "server" protocol. I've been poking around a bit in the code, but
haven't yet figured out why it's using that instead of my user ID.
I'll play with it a little more, but if I can't figure it out soon I may have to
drop it as well (which would be a real shame; it's a nice little Java app).

Setting CVS_RSH alone does not work.
There is an option for the rsh executable in the program options. Set
this to a fully specified path to ssh, e.g. "/usr/bin/ssh".
Btw.: jCVS changes the CVS/Root entry to
