I couldn't figure out how to do that, but isn't that a little unsafe?
After some more investigation, it looks like the way ssh wants you to
do this is with ssh-agent and ssh-add. All you have to do is launch
an rxvt with ssh agent like this:
then add your pass phrase to the agent like this:
and you'll be able to connect to any server holding your public
identity in ~./ssh/authorized_keys without typing the pass phrase
This appears to be a way to get around the problems with rsh from a
masqueraded host, and will allow cvs access. The security is an added
bonus, I suppose.
