Sourceforge connection

I use winscp to connect with sourceforge cvs

I use: this parameters
hostname: shell.sourceforge.net
port: 22
myUser/myPass

I connect succesfully to my directory
home/user/a/an/andream1977
I put inside this directory my source file, then i go to sourcegorge.net and i click on link Browse CVS
I don't see my file.

Where i wrong, i use a incorrect hostname?

Re: Sourceforge connection

Browse CVS is web-based CVS reader for source code of your project. It has nothing to do with your home directory. You must use CVS clint to upload the soruce code.

As I have wrote already, use CVS client to access your repository. I use Tortoise CVS.

Read SF.net documentation on the topic.

I'm not a CVS expert, but AFAIK, you must use 'ext' protocol, not 'pserver' do any changes on SF CVS. For additional help, please contact SF support. This is out of scope of this forum.
