    Remote Source Code Control

    Is anyone aware of a decent source code control system that runs remotely over the internet. We currently have no VPN setup, but would like to utilise uploading and checking out source files via FTP or similar. I'm aware upload speeds at slower compared with download but any ideas would be appreciated.

    Subversion will fit the bill. You can check out and commit over HTTP and it has a variety of authentication methods. It's available for Win32 and various Unix platforms. Although it's command-line based, there's a couple of good GUIs if you need them.

        CC is a script/build running tool that taks to source control, rather than source control itself

        +1 for subversion, also available over ssh if necessary. Likewise for CVS.

              Been using this over the web for the last 2 years:

              http://www.ngsource.com/

              Have the client installed on my laptop and the server is somewhere near York I believe.

              The product is a lot beter than the website

                  +lots for Subversion.

                  There are also lots of ways of integrating it with your bug-tracking system (you do have one?) so that individual revisions are directly linked to the bug they are supposed to fix, and conversely that individual bug reports contain links to the revision that is supposed to have fixed them

                  Edit: I mean automatically linked by HTTP hyperlinks in their respective UIs - it's an epic win
