I'm starting a project with another partner of mine and have therefore resorted to using the Student Package from Kiln as a repository. I would like to get the bloody thing to work.

I've looked at the tutorials from TortoiseHg. I created a repository in my local folder in which I'm creating my code. I have committed an example change with a comment. The local repository server (me: sees the commit just fine. I just can't figure out how to push it to the server.

I tried using the Synchronize button and then going into the settings to specify my server like so:

Configure > Remote Repository Paths > Add:***

However, my push keeps timing out and ARGH! Getting repositories to work is such a pain for a first time xD

I would appreciate any help in getting this to work.

Seems like port 8000 is blocked by your firewall. Try putting an exception in your firewall program and let TortiseHg communicate via port 8000
