understanding is that no version of CVS (including the cygwin version) will run
in server mode. I could be wrong of course - certainly Spiro seems to
deep into history - one of the motivators for writing CVSNT seven years ago was
to support servers on Windows. It was then back ported to
are needing a "faster tag" CVSNT 2.6 which goes into general testing soon(ish)
includes that feature.
Thanks for the info, but it won’t help me. What I didn’t say in my
earlier post (this is what I get for trying to be brief! ;-> ) is that the
reason I’m going through this exercise is to use some profiling tools to
figure out why certain operations against my linux based repo take so
long. I only have windows licenses for the tools that I want to use, so
I need to come up with a way to do tag –b operation with a windows cvs
So, do you believe
that the 1.12.13 cvs.exe won’t work with a local repo on

RE: How to move a repository from linux to
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

Subject: How to move a repository from
linux to windows?
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
