Hi; I am setting up CVS server for NT 184.108.40.206 on a Windows NT 4.0 Server for the first time, and I am testing this using WinCvs Version 1.3B6 clients. I am the system administrator for our company so I am testing for functionality right now and the best setup for our situation. A couple of questions have come up for me. 1. In Step 1b in the CVS Server for NT instructions says; Installation of the cvsnt inside the WinCVS application folder (WinCvs 1.3 and higher only) The NT server is supported by WinCVS 1.3b3 or better. *copy the cvsnt cvs.exe into WinCvs\cvsnt.exe My Question: should this be copy to cvs.exe? here and not to cvsnt.exe? My Question: Are we supposed to copy the cvs.exe file from the server install to the client install directory here? copy the cvsnt cvs95.exe into WinCvs\cvs95.exe In the preference dialog select 'cvsnt/95 (cvsnt server)' My Question: Where do I select this? In the preferences dialog of the client? I don't see it there. 2. Given that most of my client machines will be Windows NT 4.0 WS, Windows 2000, or Windows XP Pro, but may include a couple of Windows 95 or Windows 98 SE should I stick with PSERVER or should I use NTSERVER authentication? 3. I have created group that maps the V: drive to \\cvs-svr1\cvs <file://\\cvs-svr1\cvs> on the server where I have both the CVSNT install on the server and the repository v:\cvsroot. Is this workable? I read where NamedPipeImpersonation doesnt' work over shares. I don't understand this. If I don't use shares and mapped drives what other alternatives are there for using CVS on a server? 4. I will have users that are local to the NT domain (Windows NT 4.0), but I also will need to allow users on another NT domain in Canada to access this server through our VPN. How can I make this happen? Thanks, Joel -------------- next part -------------- An HTML attachment was scrubbed...
