This is easy! Me and my enigneers do this all the time.
#1) Set up a script in your home directory
exec ssh -p <port> $@
We do this because we have ssh access on a different port.
#2) Setup your CVS env vars
CVSROOT=cfowler at 22.214.171.124/u01/ENS/CVS
export CVS_RSH CVSROOT
You should not have to do a login any more. Typing 'cvs co <module>'
will prompt you for your ssh password unless you are using key authentication.
