Please don't send questions like this to me in private, your chances of
getting a good reply are much higher if you send to the lists instead.

The local PC reference is concerning the location of the repository
visavi the CVSNT service. The repository must be located on the same PC
as where the CVSNT service runs. All other configurations are not supported.

Access from the Internet can be more securely arranged if you open up the
firewall on port 2401 and forwards calls here to the internal CVSNT server.

Subject: Comments on CVSNT Installation Tips

I am having a lot of trouble installing CVSNT and the client, WinCVS. Some
of it works but after trying every menu option on the screens for several
hours, I had to give up trying to get it all working.

In any case my first question concerns where to install CVSNT. I want to put
it on our web server so that program developers can get to it from the
Internet. Your documentation does not mention how to do this. Some
newsgroups seem to think that this can be done easily.

You state that the repository must be installed on the LOCAL PC. This is
unclear. Would the web server be a LOCAL PC? If I install CVSNT on the web
server how does it see the repository if it resides on a LOCAL PC if it
cannot use mapped drives?
