Hi there, The simplest way to do this are: 1. Setup CVSNT on a Windows-based server 2. Create a repository 3. Start the CVS services 4. Connect to CVSNT using WSAD: - protocol : pserver - default port - the respository path should use forward slash /something 5. Check firewall for CVSNT server $ Neo James Adams wrote: > Hello, > I have installed and (I think) correctly configured > CVSNT on my Windows XP machine.
