CVS? & Networking?


I have two questions here, both sound like stupid questions.

1) What is a CVS server? What's it for?

2) What are the tools used in Linux for networking? How would I set up the various network environments under Linux?

If it's in documentation (I bet it is), point me toward it.

CVS is the Concurrent Versions System. It basically is a system developers use so they can all work on the same source for a project and updates are merged together and handled correctly. It also keeps track of all the changes so you can roll back if something gets broken.

What do you mean by "various network environments"?

Thanks.

What I mean by "various network environments" is just that, setting a Linux box up to be a Windows server, a peer-to-peer share, a network client, etc. I want to know or find documentation on how to set up a Linux box to play various roles on a network.

Webserver
Windows (SMB) Networking
FTP Server

There are a bunch of p2p sharing programs at Freshmeat.

Not quite sure what you mean by network clients past that.

Oh yeah, I guess if I look on their websites, I could find commands that are used with those servers. ...as far as a client, you know what a network client is, don't you? A workstation.
