You can remove the pserver_protocol DLL and stop the login.

However my understanding is that a client which attempts a pserver login 
will send the trivially encoded password to the server in the BEGIN AUTH 
REQUEST before the server is able to refuse the login.
Therefore if you want your passwords to only be securely transmitted 
tell your users not to attempt a pserver login.
sserver encrypts all information after the initial BEGIN SSL AUTH 
REQUEST connection string.
See http://www.cvsnt.org/cvsclient/Connection-string.html
