> I'm confused. I thought CVSNT was the port of (GNU) CVS to windows. That's only what it started out to be. By now it has turned into a product of its own right. For a list of features that are in CVSNT but not in GNU CVS see here: http://www.cvsnt.org/wiki/CvsntAdvantages . BTW: CVSNT by now also runs on *ix again. > Is there > GNU CVS client and server (whose most recent version is 1.11.6) that run on > Windows that is largely redundant with CVSNT 2.0.46? Depends on your definition of "redundant". CVSNT is largely downwards compatible to GNU CVS if that's what you mean. > I have a very recent > download of cygwin and "cvs -v" indicates that both the client and server > are 1.11.6. You probably mean 1.11.16 . 1.11.6 would be pretty old... > If so, I'm curious: how do I start this GNU CVS server that is distributed > with cygwin? I don't know for sure as I've never used it myself but I think Cygwin only ships with a CVS client, not a server. > Maybe my problem was that I was using the GNU cvs client to talk to the > CVSNT server and maybe that is a bad combination. It usually works. You simply picked one of the CVSNT-specific commands to try it which obviously couldn't work. As long as you stick to the commands that are supported by GNU CVS you should have no problems using a CVSNT client against it. Hope this helps. -- Oliver ---- ------------------ JID: ogiesen at jabber.org ICQ: 18777742 (http://wwp.icq.com/18777742)
