Does anyone know where I can get one? I want to run a CVS server on my WinXP Home install so my team can work together on a project. The only thing I''ve found is CVSNT which does not work on WinXP Home unfortunately (the service won''t stay up.. it starts and then closes). Any suggestions?

I don''t see a reason why CVSNT wouldn''t work on XP Home. XP is NT after all. Have you followed the instructions to the letter?

I''m afraid CVSNT is the only server implementation for Windows. You might want to look into Subversion[1], which is a huge improvement over CVS in general. However, it''s still pretty rough around the edges(it''s currently in alpha) and setting it up isn''t as easy as it could be. I''m fairly sure it still requires you to compile Apache from source, but I could be wrong(I do that anyway).

Did you define a respository prefix in the control panel applet? If not, the service will fail to start.

That makes sense.. It worked now .

But now.. how do I set it up so my team can access it over the net?
