Need to access your VSS projects when you're not on the company network?
Currently, Eric Sink's company, SourceGear,
sells a product called SourceOffSite that provides
remote access to VSS databases.
The next version of Visual SourceSafe will
feature that allows you to access your source-controlled projects in Visual Studio
over the Internet.
If you can't wait for the next version of Visual SourceSafe, can't afford SourceOffSite,
or are just interested like me, there's a new freeware app you might consider.
The following announcement was posted by Arthur
Neterovsky on the microsoft.public.vsnet.vss newsgroup last week:
glad to announce the new version of SCCBridge project.
is freeware project that implements remote access
version control systems (including SourceSafe) via web
following features are implemented in the current version:
