accessing CVS

(OP)
hi
I have a question. I have installed CVS on my linux machine.
How to access CVS repository from my windows98 machine.
Both are in network.cvs login from windows. Can you guide me on this?
thanks

RE: accessing CVS

You have a few options at this stage, I would recommend you look at few CVS GUI's.  The ones we tend to use here are TkCVS and WinCVS.  I have used both and although WinCVS is probably a better package, I actually prefer the simplicity of TkCVS - although it tends to require you to define modules to work.

I have only used both GUI's to access a repository via 'pserver' (i.e. not ssh or rsh) - So I would setup 'pserver' access on CVS:


add a new entry to /etc/inetd.conf (if you are using xinetd it is a little different) - make sure the paths are correct for your machine/setup.

2401 stream  tcp  nowait  root  /usr/local/bin/cvs
cvs -f --allow-root=/usr/local/cvsroot pserver

Then restart inetd.

I assume you have already done the 'cvs init' to start the repository...
