For security issue, I'm using the latest CVSNT version ( 
and NetworkSimplicity's OpenSSH for windows to config my environment. My 
config is to use passwordless ssh2 (:ext portocol) to talk to my CVSNT 
server. So far, there is no problem with CVS checkout, but when I wanted 
to commit some modified files in my sandbox back into the CVSNT server, 
I got the error message saying:

cvs server: user 'SYSTEM' is not a valid editor of the file '<my file name>'

Thanks for any feedback response to help solving my problem!
