Hi Christian,

I have made the changes you suggested.
Also changed the below:
client.connect(hostname, username)

After these changes, i am getting the error:

i looked up google. ssh for port 22 was already present.
Then i tried adding rbssh, paramiko and openssh to the /etc/services
Still same issue. What service/program is RB/paramiko using?

these are the values passed to the connect. I do NOT think they are
updated correctly. Of-course i could be wrong.
hostname - root:cvs-bn
username - root:<my id>
command - root:['cvs server']

when i tried to hardcode them as below, they did not take the values i
gave. They retained their original values
    213     hostname = 'cvs-bn'
    214     username = '<my id>'
    215     logging.error(hostname)
    216     logging.error(username)

ERROR:root:<my id>

I ran out of what else to try here. Help Please........
