> 1. I added a directory in [service control panel] - [Repositories], do I > have to set environment CSVROOT? This is your repository root. All of your modules have to be within a repository. You have to set here the folder that will be the repository root, "subfolders" will be created through CVS when you import or add. Once you set the root, the repository has to be managed through CVS. The environment variable CVSROOT is used to tell CVS "client" the default connection string to the CVS "server". The problem is CVS uses the "CVSROOT" name for too many things... > a. what does "Run as User" use for ? It's the account CVS will use to perform its operations > 4. How do I add CVSNT user ? in CVSNT documentation only explain in UNIX > environment. PS. CVSNT documentation from CVSNT installation Depends on what protocol you are using. You can add user to the passwd files with cvs passwd, but you have to understand the config files settings for authentication too, if you want to use OS authentication. > host address : 172.22.6.21 -----> this my ip address This should be the CVSNT server IP address, not the client. > username : administrator ------> I thought it use Windows login, so The availability of Windows logins depends on the config files settings > ? but why if change the path to C:/Project can not login ? Remember that any operation has to be done *within* the repository. Think the repository as some sort of "database" where each file history is kept. CVSNT stores data as files using the file system, other (i.e. Subversion) store data in a real database, but the metaphor is always the same. In the CVSROOT (connection) string, you have to tell CVS which is the repository "root" you want to connect to (you are allowed to create more than one repository on the same server)
