I'm running cvsnt on one machine as a server and trying to connect to it using netbeans, but I'm not sure how to configure the cvs profile in netbeans.

Can anyone point me towards a tutorial? or clue me into any abnormalities?
I've gotten netbeans to work with normal cvs on a local machine. I'm just not sure how to set up the profile. I'm assuming servername is the name of the machine running the server, server type is "server"? port? 2401 is the standard port yes? not sure what to put as repository path, as it should be served over an internet connection shouldn't this be transparent?

But I need to set up a CVS server that will work over TCP/IP as the developement team is going to be quite spread out.

Tad,
First thing to do is make sure you can connect to a remote CVS via the commandline. This is actually the harder part. You need to make sure the ports are open too. I imaging the CVS manual describes this in more depth.

Yes, the servername is the name of the machine running the server. If the machine is not listed in DNS, you can use the IP address instead. If you are not running over SSH, the server type is "server" and the port is the default (unless you set up CVS differently.)

The repository path is the same as it would be locally. Since you can have many repositories on one machine, it isn't enough to say the machine name.
