Hello David,
Firstly documentation on WINCVS is very sparse. When
our team tested some features (on a stand alone node)
they found many differences in what is given in the
WINCVS doc (googled and downloaded) and actual
implementation (can mail some examples if need be).
After learning the features the hard way, we tried to
implement on a client-server architecture and it is
here that we were unable to even establish connection!

Can you post link to the CVS book and any other doc
that will help in resolving issues? Lastly is SVN
better? I have no inkling of what VSN is!!! Thanks.
