Following the help tutorials in Eclipse 3.0.0, I try to add a CVS repository:

Host: localhost
Repository path: C:\cvs\src\master

user: MyWindowsAccountName
password: MyWindowsAccountPassword

connection: pserver
default port

I get a message that says "Error validating location: Cannot connect to host."

Can't seem to find any help in the CVS manuals. Anybody got any recommendations? Thanks!

Hi Wally,

You must use a client/server model to connect to CVS in Eclipse. Try setting up your CVS server as a Windows service then connect via pserver. Sorry I can't offer more help with the CVS server on Win32 I'm a mac guy and have pushed all my Windows info out into my gray matter :-)

Hope this helps!
