A friend of mine and I work on a lot of projects together. Primarily in C and C++. He is attending school in a different state and we keep havivng to "sync" our file changes each night over the phone and via E-mail.
What I am looking for is suggestions for setting up a CVS without having a centralized internal network.
Here are some ideas I am considering, but I would like some more suggestions.
1. Talk my web hosting company into letting us setup a CVS on our Web Space
2. Setup a Server in my home that my friend can dial-in to and check out project files and dial-in to check them back in.
Any other ideas better than these?

Thanks, but I need a CVS, not a fancy Instant Messenger and E-mail program. Plus, that is not free.

You can setup your own web server and install CVS (www.cvshome.org). This way, you have full control over your repository and you can grant anyone permission to update/commit files. Providing that you would take the time to learn how to properly install and configure CVS, then this is a pretty good idea IMO.

Yeah, I could setup my own Web Server. However, how would I give someone in a different state access to my web server running on my internal network. VPN? This is what I need to have suggestions on.

If your projects are open source (and if not, why not?) you can start up a project at sourceforge.net which gives you free CVS, bug tracking, web space, download servers etc. etc.
I use it for several of the projects I'm working on and it's very useful. See (for example http://sourceforge.net/projects/friki )

Best Idea I have heard yet. Thanks Frank. I didn't realize the features you get with sourceforge. I am headed there now.
