I have 2 computers. one is winxp and it has eclipse installed on it and

followed these steps
(see CVS in that page)
but i entered the following

-repository bath: /home/cvs

-user: me
-password: whatever

-connection extssh

why I am getting that error message.... I install Putty on windows too
(ssh client i guss)

Please cut  and paste the actual error message.  If it doesn't automatically give you a detailed error message dialog, open the error log (Help->About Eclipse platform -> Configuration (button at bottom) -> View Error Log (button at bottom).  The cvs error should be displayed at the bottom of the log.

If you are using eclipse on windows, it might be best to try to access cvs from the command line before trying to use it from eclipse.  I find it easier to figure out the :ext: line on the command line.

For cvs-ssh access, Putty.exe won't work (Putty is interactive, like telnet).  Use plink.exe.  You can get it from the same place you got putty.
