accessing CVS

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?

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...
