JPass winCVS configuration:
This document describes on how to get access to the CVS repository for JPass.
The CVS clinet I use is winCVS. The sourceforge CVS repository requires a secure connection to access the CVS. The secure connection is established using ssh. (It's like a save Telnet).
1. Get the software and install.
Install openSSH, you should get a directory similar to this:
SSH requires some environment settings to work correctly:
test (Command line): ssh <userid>@jpass.sourceforge.net
2. Install winCVS
go to preferences and configure like this:
The IP address is used instead of cvs.jpass.sourceforge.net, you won't need proper DNS setup if you use IP.
The ssh settings are picture here:
The -N option is VERY important. I found out you need to use this, to prevent ssh to set all kinds of shell settings on the server which are not allowed by the cvs server on sourceforge.net (#$@%@^ took me hours.....).
3. Now check out jpass, you will be prompted for your password in a DOS box. you can read in @reference to jpass developers document.
