Sounds like a training issue. Also, easiest and most secure are generally
mutually exclisive. :-)

SSH is pretty easy, it's free, and commonly understood.

Why not use WinCVS?  I'm pretty sure the user can even set his/her passwd in
line that specifies the repository. That would solve the retyping problem,
but at
the expense of some security/authentication.  Can anyone confimr this?
Larry, Greg,
