When checking out a working copy with a CVS client, it will save the information to access the repository in
CVS/Root files of your working copy.
This is done so you don't have to enter any such information again when performing CVS commands on your working copy, like update or commit.
In SmartCVS there exist so-called Repository Profiles which store even more information about how to access a repository than is visible in the
To check out a working copy from the repository, you have to create and use such a Repository Profile.
When performing a CVS command in a working copy (a SmartCVS project), SmartCVS looks at the
CVS/Root files of the working copy and searches its list of Repository Profiles.
If it finds a matching one, it will use that.
If it does not find a matching one, for example because you created a SmartCVS project from a working copy you have checked out with another CVS client, it will create a corresponding Repository Profile automatically.
Especially for the ext connection method you may need to change the Repository Profile details, e.g. by specifying the used authentication type (password or private key file).
If you want to use a different Repository Profile for your working copy, you have to change the
CVS/Root files accordingly or use the Tools|Change Used Repository of the Professional edition.
