There is a server componenets piece on the 4 screen of cvsnt-2.0.36.exe
has a 'Server components' - I just always deslect that as I have a local
repository, and connect to a linux repository.

We run both.  By that I mean both clients, both servers, and use
client with the standard CVS on Unix boxes.  We only use an
client with the WinCVS server.  We're transitioning towards cvsNT,
from standard CVS.  If you've already got it set up, go that route. 
has more features than standard CVS.

BTW, the cvsNT install is both client and server.  So everyone
the same thing, but just tells it not to create a lock server, etc. 
would be nice if there was a client option in the installer that
wouldn't do any of the server installations.

I'm confused. I thought since I was running Windows I should download
CVSNT so I did. I was then informed this was a superset of CVS and
slightly different.

Now I go to

er=83&folderID=80 and discover that CVS runs under windows. Hmmm... Is
this CVS different from CVSNT?

Bo kindly referred me to his documentation on CVSNT and I have not had
chance to study it yet. Is his documentation the only comparison
CVS for windows and CVSNT? Judging from the version numbers, it is.

I'm wondering which I should be running: CVS or CVSNT? How do I
determine which one is best for me?
