Thanks for the respose Arthur

Lets suppose I want to use sserver (this was my preferred route)

I had troubles using the ext protocol:
1. Is there anything I need to do on the server side to get it working? (The one things i did do was generate a key and point cvsnt sserver plugin to it.)
2. do i also need to set CVS_EXT and CVSROOT on the client?

netbeans ver 5.0 only allows pserver, ext, fork and local. If I specify ext in netbeans, I can use the internal shell and specify password + proxy settings (are the proxy settings relevant? I assumed not); otherwise I can select an external shell, but presumably i need a command line shell that handles private keys etc to set this up. I don't know whether SServer would be compatible with either of these - is there such a thing as a shell for sserver??

is there a user friendly explanation of what the sserver protocol actually is anywhere?

(my questions will probably reveal my scant knowledge of cvs and networking)
