That won't work.  extnt does not handle encryption except where it's 
inherent to the protocol (ssh and sserver).

eclipse should have a flag to enable encryption on the client - the 
equivalent of using cvs -x from the command line.  This isn't something 
extnt can help with - it's up to the client to initiate the encryption 
using the protocol.

Actually thinking about it even that may not work work with extnt binary 
as it would have to know the moment the client requests encryption and 
start using it... however without the help of eclipse it's a non-starter.
