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.
