These are instructions to connect to the RobotCub software repository through CVS.

First of all, make sure your account is set up. Please SSH to the server by typing:

 ssh cvs.robotcub.org -l YOURUSERNAME

or anything else as required by your specific client. If you manage to log in correctly then you can proceed to change your password. The shell you just log in into only allows two commands: passwd and cvs. Use the passwd command to change your default password. Now you're all set to move to checkout the RobotCub repository. Then logout from the remote shell using 'exit'.

If you use ssh command line (linux) or cygwin on windows:

 export CVS_RSH=ssh
 cvs -d USERNAME@cvs.robotcub.org:/cvsroot/robotcub co iCub

In practice this tells cvs to connect to cvs.robotcub.org and checkout the iCub module (the capitalized C is mandatory).

You have read/write access to this repository so please be careful :)

Connect to the RobotCub software repository using WinCVS:

Run WinCVS, do Remote->Checkout module with:

 Module name: iCub
 Local folder: any..
 CVSROOT: :ssh;username=USERNAME;password=hanbury;hostname=cvs.robotcub.org:/cvsroot/robotcub

Please change the USERNAME to your own.
