Hi, I saw a post at the end of October asking about how to get CVS working after installing service pack 2. I was merrily connecting to my remote repository through WinCVS until this morning, when I installed SP2. Now I just can't get anything to happen with respect to CVS. I've tried turning off the firewall, adding WinCVS and cvs.exe to the firewall exceptions, specifying a port to allow the firewall to use, all to no avail. I can connect to the machine my remote repository is on via ssh in a cygwin window. But I cannot get CVS to work from the Cygwin command line either. I copied the command to checkout a module which was generated by WinCVS and pasted it into the Cygwin window, and then I got the following error message: $ cvs -z9 -d ext;username=MyUsername;hostname=MyHostIP:/var/lib/cvsrepo checkout -P MyModule Usage: cvs [cvs-options] command [command-options-and-arguments] where cvs-options are -q, -n, etc. (specify --help-options for a list of options) where command is add, admin, etc. (specify --help-commands for a list of commands or --help-synonyms for a list of command synonyms) where command-options-and-arguments depend on the specific command (specify -H followed by a command name for command-specific help) Specify --help to receive this message The Concurrent Versions System (CVS) is a tool for version control. For CVS updates and additional information, see the CVSNT home page at http://www.cvsnt.org/ bash: checkout: command not found Any help would be greatly appreciated! Pam
