I am using the help module and keep going around in circles.
I can open the CVS Repository Explorer, but I don't see the anything there.
I am trying to find a place for the server, account name and password.

I don't see any "view" context menu in order to add a CVS repository location.
Do this make sense to someone?

Sonny,
Right click in the big white space. One of the options is to create a new connection. Selecting that gives you a dialog with space for all that connection info.

I have OS X and can't right click, :roll:
Apparently you have Windows.
My tool bar says :
Excplise File Edit Navigate Search Project Run Window Help

I am looking for "View" but can't find it.

Doh!

OK, under your menubar there is a toolbar. Assuming your toolbar in the perspective is more or less default, you'll have the following groupings:
file operations (new, save, print, etc)
run external tool (maybe)
search (the flashlight)
CVS repository operations **
navigation (back, forward arrows)

The CVS repository items look like
a) a little puzzle piece, with an arrow back and forth to a cylinder.
This is the synchronize button.
b) a little magic wand over a network/node type icon labeled "cvs"
This button starts the new repository location wizard.

Thanks, I got it now. :roll:
In fact there are two ways to get there.
1. Jeanne's right click (holding down the control key)
2. David's icon on the toolbar.

Now I see there are only 3 choices for Connection type
  • pserver
  • ext
  • extssh

  • The server uses SSH 2 security. I have tried pserver and extssh to no avail.

    There has been an update for SSH2 users. See the link below.


    JCraft.net info

    The plugin is part of Eclipse 3.0 (M6 or later)
