1. Documentation There ain't very much documentation on the program itself. What I have found is about the same as you have. CVS is widely documented (http://cvsbook.red-bean.com/) 2. CVSNT version AFIK there is no dependency between client and server. I have used both 1.2 and 1.3 against all kinds of cvs servers both CVSNT 1.10.8 and all flavours of 1.11.1.x as well as against Linux versions. No difference. 3. Setup I am using ntserver on my managed repositories. The issue with pserver was that by using pserver (with the latest CVSNT) it is possible to use file system permissions still and the clients could be on Win95/98/ME because the server operates on behalf of the aliased or logged in account. So many people wanted to get it going. You still need the passwd file with ntserver to allow people in I have found out. 4. Documentation for CVSNT setup Well, I don't think there is much more than devguy and my news post that cover the details of setting up. Why don't you use my posted instructions? They do work. 5. Import This is a general CVS usage thing. You should read up on CVS. The client software (WinCvs) just is a help, but you need to understand the basics. I really recommend reading Karl Fogel's book. (http://cvsbook.red-bean.com/) And NO, the import is done from the client. Nothing is done from the server once it has been set up. In fact it should be isolated from all direct tampering from everybody. /Bo -----Original Message----- From: Luke.W.Friendshuh at seagate.com [mailto:Luke.W.Friendshuh at seagate.com] Sent: den 4 april 2002 00:45 To: bo.berglund at telia.com Subject: Re: [Cvsnt] Newbie, "No such repository" error on create repository Thank you for your assistance. I have a few more questions. 1) We are using winCVS version 1.2. I was able to find documentation for versions 1.1 and 1.3, but not 1.2. Which should I use or is there somewhere, where I can get documentation for 1.2 2) Does the cvsnt version have to be a certain version in order to work with a winCVS 1.2 client? 3) Your setup instructions that you sent me seem to be for when you are setting it up with a pserver. What if you don't want to use a pserver and just want to use the ntserver? 4) I looked at the URLs that you sent. They seem useful. Is there any other documentation specific to setting up cvsnt. I still think that is were we are messing up. 5 ) I think we are further a long than before, but I still can't import any new modules. Does that have to be done from the server too? Thanks again, Luke. _______________________________________________ Cvsnt mailing list Cvsnt at cvsnt.org http://www.cvsnt.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/cvsnt https://www.march-hare.com/cvspro/en.asp#downcvs
