I don't know if this topic has been raised but I did a quick search and skim through a few posts and found nothing related to what I had just experienced.
Does "ext" access method work at all for IDEA 3.0.5rc?
I've setup my project with "ext" as the access method, and fill in the other information. When I tried to do a "status" on a file, I get the following message:
Why is IDEA trying to connect to localhost? I specified the host setting as "foo.net".
Locally, my settings are fine. I can do a cvs -d :ext:foo.net:/cvsroot co module and it'll work like a charm.
So, to try something different, I started a new project and attempted to use "ext" access method again. This time it was worse. I was prompted with countless "Could not save project" dialog boxes, and they would come one after another each time I clicked the "OK" button to get rid of it.
I don't know what else to do to make this work.
Maybe someone out there knows more than I do.
