    I have ssh set up so that I can ssh to a Linux server from my Linux
    workstation quite easily. the command line "ssh servername" logs me
    right into the server without asking for a password, as I have accounts
    on both machines.

    My problem is when I set up CVS to use ssh for accessing CVS archives on
    the server. $CVSHOME looks like this:


    When I try to do "cvs checkout", I get this message:

    The authenticity of host 'servername.domain (' can't be
    RSA Key fingerprint is XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX.
    Are you sure you want to continue connectin (yes/no)?

    This repeats over and over, whether I say yes or no, I assume because
    CVS keeps trying until I hit ^c.

    Thanks in advance,
