Capistrano, CVS, and connection refused issue

If you ever find yourself using CVS as your repository, and are trying to deploy your projects via capistrano, you may run into a connection refused issue. The easiest way I found a solution around this was to modify the capistrano file: “/capistrano-2.1.0/lib/capistrano/recipes/deploy/scm/cvs.rb”. This of course is in your ruby gems folder.I could have added just the change to my project, but I am lazy, and need this for multiple CVS project deploying from this machine. The change I made was on line 145, which I added the CVS_RSH=ssh line:

"export CVS_RSH=ssh && mkdir -p #{ dest } && cd #{ dest }"
