Configure CVS client on solaris 9

How do i configure CVS client on solaris 9?

I have installed the software from sunfreeware.com and i added the cvs user.


I have also made entries on the /etc/services file to listen on port 2041 tcp/udp.

when I try to set up a CVS repository locally, I get the following:

cvs -d /cvs/repository
Usage: cvs [cvs-options] command [command-options-and-arguments]
  where cvs-options are -q, -n, etc.
    (specify --help-options for a list of options)
  where command is add, admin, etc.
    (specify --help-commands for a list of commands
     or --help-synonyms for a list of command synonyms)
  where command-options-and-arguments depend on the specific command
    (specify -H followed by a command name for command-specific help)
  Specify --help to receive this message

The Concurrent Versions System (CVS) is a tool for version control.
For CVS updates and additional information, see
    the CVS home page at http://cvs.nongnu.org/

Please, help

It's a little unclear what you are trying to do.

To create a CVS repository, you need to do

CVSROOT=/cvs/repository ; export CVSROOT

and either do

cvs init

or

cvs import .....

That guide is for Solaris 10, so almost ever step will not be applicable to your system.

1. Where do you want the CVS repository to exist?
2. Where do you want to access the repository from?
3. What CVS client/s will you be using?

1. We have a CVS server, i want this solaris 9 machine to connect to it for check in n check out

2.I want to access the repository from this client machine

3.I am using cvs software from sunfreeware.com. if this doesn't answer your question, then i don't understand the question.

OK, that answers most of the questions apart from the CVS server itself.  Is the only access via cvspserver?  It's also quite common to use ssh for the CVS connection, but it does depend on the setup of the CVS server.

It's through SSH

TintinCommented:
In that case, all you need to do is set

export CVS_RSH=ssh
export CVSROOT=:ext:username@server:/cvs/repository

p0sreedAuthor Commented:
the 2nd line should be

export CVSROOT=$USER@server:/<path to cvs repository>
