I'm very new to CVS, and have a few questions....would really appreciate if anyone could take sometime to answer them. I'm sure this thread will help newcomers like me: 1. If I understand properly, CVSNT is a service running on SYSTEM, and WinCVS, ViewCVS, etc. are frontends. Then is it mandatory to have CVSNT installed on SYSTEM to be able to use WinCVS? 2. I want a setup in which the repository is located in one geographical location, and can be accessed via the internet from other locations. Is this possible using a combination of CVSNT/WinCVS/ViewCVS, etc? 3. Is there a way to ensure that such an access to the central repository is safe, i.e. over ssl? By the way, what the heck is 'pserver'? 4. Are there major issues relating to performance of CVS over the internet (or even over a LAN)? Thank you in advance. Regards, Maneesh
