comment Setting up a machine to use a key over SSH
It's a good idea to start a debugging server, but I'd have a close look at the system logs first. Moving the authorized keys seems like a drastic measure though.

comment How to do remote CVS through multiple SSH connections
I work in an environment exactly like this. Thank god we moved away from cvs recently, but I was still able to try it: cvs says "CVSROOT port specification is only valid for gserver, kserver, and pserver connection methods". CVS can be a real pain.

comment Best firewall for Ubuntu
Please define "best" first! Why do you need a firewall at all? Does your desktop have a direct internet connection? What services do you run that have open ports?

Oh. And additionally, CVS doesn't allow ports to be specified when using SSH. Duh.

comment How to do remote CVS through multiple SSH connections
This is almost right, but not quite. You don't want the new port on B where it would be accessible to the whole word. You want the port on your local workstation's localhost. ssh -L will do exactly that and thus you need to change the cvs command line because cvs needs to connect to localhost and not to B.
