unable to connect to cvs from eclipse

Reported by: bxconrad Owned by:
Keywords: Cc:
Private: no


I'm the owner of a project called JFig. I haven't done any work on it for 4 or 5 years. I'm trying to use my existing cvs eclipse connection but am unable to connect. My connection string is:
I'm using the same password I use to log in to sourceforge which works ok. When I try to connect and look at the head I get a message:
Error fetching resource list from repository. Reason: could not connect to :extssh:bxconrad@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/jfig: CVS communication error org.eclpse.team.internal.ccvs.ssh2.CVSSSH2ServerConnection$SSH2IOException: Connection refused: connect

I've been able to connect to another cvs site.

Is there something I'm missing here? Thanks for any help on this.

It appears you are using an old connection URL, the URLs now contain the project name in them. So "jfig.cvs.sourceforge.net" instead of "cvs.sourceforge.net".

If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
