Hi Friends,

I have cvs-1-12-10 and trying to set it up. I have initialize it and set the CVSROOT and imported a directory with the source. My question is can this be used as a location for other users of a project(in the same network) access the source in the directory? If it is possible how? I mean is it the windows authentication used (like we can create some users for them and ask to use that for access) or do we need to create users for cvs seperately ? I'm developing in eclipse so the users(other developers) also plan to connect to CVS using eclipse. If this is not possible is there a solution (different way or another version control) for the given criteria? Any help on this would be really appriciated.

Thanks in Advance,

Vijitha,

If the users have access to the file system containing the CVSROOT and the cvs program itself.

I mean is it the windows authentication used (like we can create some users for them and ask to use that for access) or do we need to create users for cvs seperately ?

CVS uses the operating system users - in your case Windows.
