Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I want to secure CVS communication with ssh tunneling. I've made a chroot jail, with help of cvsd and i'm trying to use ssh tunneling with help of a ssh key. In general the procedure is this:
1. make user 'cvsd' who has r/w access to the CVS repository
2. set 'cvsd's shell to /bin/bash (or some proper shell) in /etc/passwd
3. set 'cvsd's password to * in /etc/shadow
4. have all developers who are using the CVS generate an ssh key
5. put an entry in 'cvsd's /home/cvsd/.ssh/authorized_keys2 file that looks like:
The client, which wants to connect to the server must fist set CVS_RSH variable to /usr/bin/ssh (or where his ssh resides) and uses :ext for cvs connection, e.g. cvs -d :ext:user@host:/cvsroot checkout module_name
The problem is, the ssh connection to the server does not use the standard port 22 for connection, but port number 22022. How can i now connect to the server? Is there a ssh's system variable or a config file i should set to change the default port number?
Unfortunately this is not working, because i use ssh for initial connection, not cvs. CVS traffic (using pserver protocol) is transferred throughout the ssh tunnel. I have to configure ssh somehow, not cvs. The external cvs shell is set to ssh, not to rsh (export CVS_RSH=ssh). I even tried to add ssh -p 22022 to CVS_RSH variable, but it's not working, i get this error msg:
cvs [checkout aborted]: cannot exec /usr/bin/ssh -p 22022: No such file or directory
(using the default ssh port 22 works though).
Maybe there is a similar variable like CVS_CLIENT_PORT for ssh??
