How SourceAnywhere for VSS works

  • SourceAnywhere for VSS is a client/server application. It consists of a Server, Cache Server (optional) and several types of Clients. They communicate over any standard TCP/IP connection.
     
  • SourceAnywhere for VSS server needs to be installed in the same LAN or on the same machine as the Visual SourceSafe (VSS) database machine. Visual SourceSafe (VSS) API (included in Visual SourceSafe (VSS) client) is used by SourceAnywhere for VSS server to access Visual SourceSafe (VSS) database.
     
  • SourceAnywhere for VSS client consists of Windows client, cross-platform client, SDK client, command line tool, Visual Studio 6/2003/2005/2008/2010 and Dreamweaver integration client and Eclipse plug-in.
     
  • SourceAnywhere for VSS clients send commands to SourceAnywhere for VSS server and SourceAnywhere for VSS server in turn calls Visual SourceSafe (VSS) API to carry out operations.
     
  • The optional SourceAnywhere for VSS cache server can be installed at client side to further improve remote access performance.
