I've not found any documents that clearly explained it, but what you need to do is install cygwin (www.cygwin.com) and setup the ssh server (see here for a howto http://tech.erdelynet.com/cygwin-sshd.html). Now, test the ssh installation by using putty or ssh to connect to the computer from the computer on which you wish to use cvs. If you can log in, make sure you can run cvs (it needs to be in your path for this cvs access via ssh to work). The final step is to set CVS_EXT=ssh.exe or tortoiseplink.exe (this is available with tortoisecvs www.tortoisecvs.org, and will display a dialog for the prompts), and connect to the server using "cvs -d:ext:username at servername:/repositoryprefix/repositoryname" List - can we put this on the wiki? I would do it, but I really don't know where exactly it should go... keith d. zimmerman, mcsd eagle solutions > -----Original Message----- > From: yigithan at cs.bilkent.edu.tr [mailto:yigithan at cs.bilkent.edu.tr] > Sent: Monday, June 23, 2003 6:49 AM > To: Keith D.
