Re: Cygwin CVS

Please keep all cygwin-related email on the cygwin list. I've redirected 
replies to go there.

Currently, cvs on cygwin is only supported as an interactive (e.g. 
non-service) application.  It is *possible* to have the inetd daemon run 
it in :pserver: mode, but that takes some effort -- see the mailing list 
archives over the last 30 days for some pointers.

The easiest thing to do is to get sshd running on the repository 
machine, and on your client machine simple set:


Then, you can use the normal commandine cvs client on your client 
machine -- and it will connect to the repository machine via ssh.
