Sorry, I just replied to a message. Didn't reall pay attention to the

It was late last night when I finished the write up on SSH.

The CVS part will be tonight.

(Below assumes "Walters Way" installation)

In short, go to

Grab the latest ZIP (1.12.9 - at the bottom of the page).

UnZIP the file and drop 'cvs.exe' in /bin

Add 2 ENV VARs...

  User ENV VAR
     HOME       u:/users/[yourname]

  System ENV VAR

Assuming you followed the SSH procedure, you now hace CVS with SSH on your
windows box.

[wait! before you tell me that is not what your asking for, read below].

Now! I have no idea if this will work on a DOS [only] box.

I'm hoping you'll be willing to experiment and tell us.

Good luck.
