RCS is a very simple file versioning tool that provides very primitive
capabilities.  Among its missing features is access to repositories outside
of the filesystem on the local machine.

If you want that kind of access, you have no choice but to change to a
different version control system (which might entail writing your own
wrappers around RCS).

Thanks for the prompt response .
Derek , I feel you have not understood my question correctly.
I have an RCS repository at a remote location (at a machine which is in US),
and I want to check-out , check-in the files into the remote repository
without logging on to the remote machine.

I want to do this sitting on my machine (which is in India) without even 
mounting the remote machine.
and I donot want to move to CVS or to some other Version control system.

I know this was quite possible if I moved to cvs .
In cvs it is possible by using the command:

cvs -d address@hidden:/net/jojo/home/Repository co src

assuming indra is a machine in India and jojo is a machine at some remote 

Is something like this possible in RCS.
If yes, can you please let me know the command using which this can be done.
