You'll need to install CVSNT Server (free GPL runs on Windows/Linux/Unix/Mac).  Provided it's a read-only copy (set the "read only" flag in the control panel) then it'll be OK.
If you need to sync between linux/unix/windows then they will need to all be CVSNT servers (all free too), and you'll get repository auditing, mergepoints, change sets etc etc.

For various reasons I want to make a windows copy of a repository that’s hosted on linux.  I’ve tried various ways to move the data and each time I end up with the same result. When using a downloaded windows binary of 1.12.13, if I do a cvs co it goes through all the motions, creates all the directories and so forth, but none of the files are there…..



Any ideas?  I’ve seen various goggle results say that the repository files always have unix style line endings regardless of the host platform, and I’ve even tried going through every file and converting it to dos style line endings with the same results.  So, I must be missing something, I’m just not sure what…..
