extssh does not work either. The same error message appears.

I used to configure the CVS repositories to use extssh connection type. The 
problem is that extssh is not supported under Cygwin. Therefore, I can not 
do cvs update if the project is checked out using extssh. I prefer using ext 
so that I can use either Cygwin, or Eclipse, or TortoiseCVS to manage the 
same file system.

The solution I found is to configure the connection type as ext but in 
windows->preferences->Team->CVS->Ext Connection Method, choosing extssh as 
the connection type.

Here is what I got:
hyzheng at DOPLAP10 /cygdrive/c/hyzheng
$ ssh source.eecs.berkeley.edu cvs -v
rksh: cvs:  not found

After I login in source.eecs.berkeley.edu, I got:
hyzheng at DOPLAP10 /cygdrive/c/hyzheng
$ ssh source.eecs.berkeley.edu
