We use the following configuration:

Connection type: pserver
userid: your userid
password: your password
host: is the name of the machine on the network where CVS server is installed
repository path: the path to the specific CVS repository you care about

use default port: selected
use the repository idenfication string as the label: selected

Server Encoding: Other = Cp1252


You can connect to CVS by opeining the CVS perspective and righ clicking in the "CVS Repositories" space.

Then select New-->Repository Location


You will then be presented with a dialog...fill it out according to the imfo above.

What you need to fill in depends, of course, on what CVS server you want to connect to. Do you already have a CVS server running?

Hi Thanks for the replies.

No i dont have any CVS server running currently.I just want to start learning about this .I have just started working in Eclipse. Currently we are using visual source safe.So i thought if i am using eclispe then why dont i learn how to use CVS.

Is a CVS server any special thing.Do i need to have any special configurations for that??
Kindly tell me about this : How to configure the server??
Suppose i want to set up it on my localhost is it possible??

Yes, you can set it up on your local machine. You can find the download and instructions at http://www.nongnu.org/cvs/

As an aside, recently many people switch from CVS to SVN, which you might also want to take a look at: http://subversion.tigris.org/

Kinda late answer but I hope it will still be helpful. If you are using Visual Source Safe (VSS), you don NOT need to use CVS.

They both do similar things. They are both source code management systems. In most places people talk about cvs becuase it is open source (free) and widely used. For VSS, there is an eclipse plugin. Just do a google search on eclipse vss plugin. Once that plugin is installed and configured, you can check in, check out etc. from eclipse.

Let me know if you need more help
