Again, from the red-bean book...

"In addition to pserver, CVS supports the ext method (which uses an external 
connection program, such as rsh or ssh), kserver (for the Kerberos security 
system version 4), and gserver (which uses the GSSAPI, or Generic Security 
Services API, and also handles Kerberos versions 5 and higher). These methods 
are similar to pserver, but each has its own idiosyncrasies"

So, perhaps there's a way to get it talking to LDAP.  The only "ext" method 
that I've used is SSH.

So, how did you access the old CVS server?
