Source Control systems are important in modern software engineering. Concurrent Version Control (CVS) is one of the most popular source control platform. CVSNT is the obvious choice for CVS Server on Windows. TortiseCVS is a nice Windows Explorer add-on that will turn your Windows Explorer into a full fledge CVS client.


You can find complete details about how to configure the CVSNT Server at  InstallationTips page in their official wiki site.


I am just listing some important portion for the reference sake.


Creating Account(s)


  • Create some folder and add it as repository, also initialize the repository.
  • From the command prompt give these commands
    set cvsroot=:sspi:COMPUTER:/Repository
    cvs passwd –r WindowsUser –a CVSUser
  • In case of any problem, try creating passwd file in Repository root and write this


Disabling Protocol


You need to physically delete the xxx_protocol.dll files. Its always a good idea to disable unsecured protocols, like pserver

If you are looking for CVS, then I will recommend you to look at http://subversion.tigris.org/ . This is developed by original authors of CVS and it does support everything which CVS has and lot of other things too.

I am using SubVersion for most of my projects. Few old repositories are still on CVS.

Check http://weblogs.com.pk/khurram/archive/2004/05/05/447.aspx about how to configure SubVersion on Windows
