bazaar virtual machine network setup

Asked by Vinay Krishnan on 2012-06-13

Hello,

I have a computer running Windows 7 and installed Oracle VM, running Ubuntu 12.
I setup Bazaar on both the Windows and Ubuntu on a Virtual machine.
I have a repository in Windows 7 and all the files have been added ( I can see that because of green tick mark on all the folders).
It is in the drive D:/Projects/sample/trunk/ and my ip address of the Windows is 10.93.80.51.

1. How do i get all the files in the Ubuntu VM. What should i entry in the branch source text box (complete text please)?
2. Is there any servers I need to install on the computer having the repository?

Thanks,
Vinay

There are various things you can do.

The simplest thing to do would probably be to go to the folder with
your branch on the server and run "bzr serve". On the client, you can
now enter "bzr://10.93.80.51/" to access the branch. This of course
requires that you have bzr installed on the windows machine too.

You can also share the folder via SMB and then mount it on the
Ubuntu machine (there are several guides on the internet on how to do
it; it's not really specific to bzr). Once you have done that, you can
simply access the branch from the mounted location.
