Hi All,

I am facing a problem, actually I want to setup an environment where five user will work on java project with eclipse. I have downloaded the TortoiseCVS and installed it but can't configuring it properly. I wanna used one local machine as a server and all other machines will work under a repository. I couldn't create the repository.

Please help me in details.

Tortoise is a client. You don't actually need it for use with Eclipse, since Eclipse has its own built-in CVS client.

What you do need is an installed version of CVS server software on the CVS server machine.

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.

Hi Tim,

Thanks in advance.
Is there any cvs server for free ? so that I can install it in my machine as a server and work from eclipse's cvs client. I saw a server cvsnt for windows which is not free. I have download the cvsnt server and installed it but still facing the problem to configuring the client and server. please give me the details instruction for configuration.

I am curious, why use CVS instead of Subversion? (Actually I might also suggest Git or Mercurial as better alternatives.)

I agree. Here's the link:
