Setting up a Client Computer for CVS Access

Once you have your CVS repository running on your host computer, you may want to access it from other computers (clients). To do this, simply set the EDITOR, CVS_RSH and CVSROOT environment variables. In this case, however, you may only wish to set the CVSROOT environment variable on the command line as you may wish to use the computer to access CVS repositories on a variety of host machines. Thus, you may wish to add the following lines to your shell configuration file:
export CVS_RSH=ssh
export EDITOR=emacs
and, on the command line:
shell> export CVSROOT='':ext:\
> /home/cvsroot''

Now you should be able to obtain the CVS projects stored on the host computer.
