Greetings and salutations. Please forgive my lack of knowledge - this is the first CVS server I have setup and I definitely have a lot to learn. I am in a Windows environment....I hope this is the correct place to post - as I am unsure where the problem exists. Here's where I am at. I have CVSNT installed on a Server 2003 box. Version is 2.5.04(Zen)Build 3236. I am using WinSSHD for an ssl connection. I have port 22 open on the firewall and have port forwarding to the default CVSNT port. I have a repository defined. This version of CVSNT is from March-Hare. I did a default install, and it SEEMS to be working. I can FTP files to the server - but cannot connect a CVS client. I have tried WinCVS and Tortise SVN. The connection just hangs. I am not sure here - but in my research it appears that I need an SSL client to go with the CVS client? This is what I'm not sure of. Questions: Is there any other information you require to be able to help? I have server software, client software, SSH - what other dependencies are there to get a CVS system working? Any help or advice would be most appreciated. Thank you.
