After selecting finish, you may get a warning about "authenticity of host can't be established";
Just ignore that message (select Yes).
If you are having problems connecting to the repository:
- Make sure you have used your Directory Id at the end of the repository path.
- Select the "Save Password" option while setting the CVS repository.
- You must use "extssh" as the connection type.
