I was wondering if anyone knows of any free private source control services as only wanting authorized users to be able to access the code and unfortunately can't afford to pay for a private repository.

assembla.com has small free private repositories. What source control system did you want to use?

bitbucket offers free private repos for Git and Mercurial, and were recently bought by Atlassian, which is a pretty awesome company IMO.

If you're using a DVCS (distributed version control system) such as git, mercurial, bazaar, or what have yuo, you need to forget about having a 'server'. You need to grok and embrace DVCS paradigm and not try to shoehorn it back into the previous century with a SVN/CVS/RCS/SCCS approach.

Your best bet is to use git and get yourself some free cloud storage to clone the repo to. That'll be as private as you want, free, and satisfies the offsite storage that a "service" will give you.

Bregma --

What you say is basically true, and I agree that you need to embrace DVCS in full, throwing out old notions; however, many DVCS hosting packages come with some additional niceties: Things like nice web-based management interface, tools like bug trackers, and other value-adds like web-based branch visualization.

If all the OP really wants is a private, off-site backup solution, or something that he can easily access from various machines and networks, then your approach is sufficient, but a purpose-built service probably offers a better package.
