A project I am working on needs source code control very badly and we are not sure of the best way to go about it.

We are developing and testing on environments setup on our local machines. This includes Eclipse, MyEclipse plugin, Tomcat, MySQL. Development and debugging takes place on these local machines. Production versions are placed on a remote server.
For the past couple of weeks have worked without formal source control and it has been hell. So we are wondering what we should do.
None of the machines are on the same network. So how is this usually handled? Any open source / free software we can use for this?
Thanks! No more manually created changelogs please!
I use cvs using ssh (it is supported by eclipse and with most other ide, even emacs, doesn't require a lengthy setup) with a server running a ssh daemon. You can acces it over the internet in different manners, like using a pserver (not secure for password transmission). There is a client WinCVS and TortoiseCVS, an extension to windows explorer(for linux, there is a client out-of-the-box).
If Apache uses it (cvs.apache.org), it must work.
You can also look at subversion (http://subversion.tigris.org/), it is designed as a successor. It supports renames and directory metainformation, things that are pains with cvs.

I use Subversion and its great. Its easy to use and configure. I'm not sure if there is an Eclipse plugin, as I prefer to use TortoiseSVN which integrates with Windows Explorer.
Seems like there is:
Very nice, thats what we were looking for. Thanks guys!
