Some time ago I set up a cvsnt server on a Win2k machine. First of
all, how can I read the history file? It is only partly human
readable, for example at the beginning of each line there is a strange
string that may be the date and time in some code? If I understand
correctly, under Linux, there is a program that displays the history

Also, 1 person has problems logging in. He gets a timeout. All other
persons, including me, have no such problems. Here is his description,
starting with the putput from a WinCVS 1.2 session. The first error
seems to be unconnected to CVS IMHO, and means the Internet connection
is bad.

------------ snip -------------------------

"-cvs -d :pserver:chronus at login
(Logging in to chronus at
-cvs [login aborted]: connect to failed: No route

*****CVS exited normally with code 1*****

-cvs -d :pserver:chronus at login (in directory
(Logging in to chronus at
-cvs [login aborted]: connect to failed:
timed out

*****CVS exited normally with code 1*****"

CVS seems to hang, and three or four minutes pass by until I finally
get an
answer to my attempted connection.

I'm sure that I did everything the right way, so I wonder if this
isn't some
kind of issue with different versions. Another thing, a friend of mine
has worked with CVS said there were patches and some issues with
these. I
have no problems connecting to the Falcon 4 Unified Team
files server, I do so by means of login and password also.

If you need more info, tell me.

Keep up the good work!

Bye bye,
