Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

1. Documentation
There ain't very much documentation on the program itself. What I have found
about the same as you have. CVS is widely documented

2. CVSNT version
AFIK there is no dependency between client and server. I have used both 1.2
and 1.3
against all kinds of cvs servers both CVSNT 1.10.8 and all flavours of
1.11.1.x as
well as against Linux versions. No difference.

3. Setup
I am using ntserver on my managed repositories. The issue with pserver was
that by
using pserver (with the latest CVSNT) it is possible to use file system
still and the clients could be on Win95/98/ME because the server operates on
of the aliased or logged in account. So many people wanted to get it going.
You still need the passwd file with ntserver to allow people in I have found

4. Documentation for CVSNT setup
Well, I don't think there is much more than devguy and my news post that
cover the
details of setting up. Why don't you use my posted instructions? They do

5. Import
This is a general CVS usage thing. You should read up on CVS. The client
(WinCvs) just is a help, but you need to understand the basics. I really
reading Karl Fogel's book. (http://cvsbook.red-bean.com/)
And NO, the import is done from the client. Nothing is done from the server
it has been set up. In fact it should be isolated from all direct tampering

Thank you for your assistance.

I have a few more questions.

1) We are using winCVS version 1.2.  I was able to find documentation for
versions 1.1 and 1.3, but not 1.2.  Which should I use or is there
somewhere, where I can get documentation for 1.2

2) Does the cvsnt version have to be a certain version in order to work
with a winCVS 1.2 client?

3) Your setup instructions that you sent me seem to be for when you are
setting it up with a pserver.   What if you don't want to use a pserver and
just want to use the ntserver?

4) I looked at the URLs that you sent.  They seem useful.  Is there any
other documentation specific to setting up cvsnt.  I still think that is
were we are messing up.

5 ) I think we are further a long than before, but I still can't import any
new modules.   Does that have to be done from the server too?

Thanks again,
