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.

Ok, after weeks looking through docs, message boards and the far corners of
the internet, somebody answer these questions in a straightforward manner at
a level that a 6th grader can understand:

Q: Does CVSNT support SSL remote connections?

Q: If CVSNT supports SSL how do you install it/configure it?

Q: The docs seem to imply that CVSNT supports SSL, and in the Windows
Control panel, in the CVSNT config dialog, there are settings for the paths
to "SSL" certificates. Are these enough to peform basic SSL authentication?

Q: IIS 6 Resource Kit comes with a free a SSL certificate. Can/Should this
certificiate be used in place of the one apparently installed with CVSNT? 

Q: Does the WinCVS GUI client support SSL connections?

Q: If WinCVS does not support SSL connections, is there a GUI that does?

end of rant....
