I am trying to make use of's free CVS features... but they do not use pserver or ext but something called sserver. Here is what they say to do:

Setting your local CVSROOT

Open the email freepository just sent you. It contains the CVSROOT string to use for secure remote command-line access to your freepository. For this example, we'll assume that my User ID is 'jbminn' and my freepository is located at /fp1/ABCD1234567. Of course, this is a fictitiuous freepository, so don't waste your time tring to get to it. Set it using the normal technique, for example:

export CVSROOT=:sserver:address@hidden:3001/fp1/ABCD1234567

And here is what I did:

        ~/wares/cvs-1.11.9/src $ cvs -v

cvs import: Unknown method (`sserver') in CVSROOT.
cvs [import aborted]: Bad CVSROOT: `:sserver:address@hidden:3725/mnt/usbhd/fp/fp1/59E.2H9vIP6fMdbix-recordset'.
        ~/wares/cvs-1.11.9/src $

How do I get his cvs mode to work? Thanks!

I am running under cygwin if it makes any difference
