It's only properly depreciated in the development nightlies, which
nobody should be using if they value their data...  It's depreciated
in the release only in the sense that I don't encourage using it
(since it's going away).

I thnik somewhere around build 55 or so, but really they should be
using 57f (or g when I get the time to release it).

It goes over the standard CVS port 2401 not port 139, so it can be
used across the internet.
It supports encryption, so is a good secure replacement for pserver.
You can log into remote domains, or as any user (however it can just
be used like ntserver and it'll just take the defaults).
