Hello Wolfram, regarding the history file I also wonder about the exact format of the timestamps. Can't find anything in Karl Fogels otherwise very good book (Open Source Development with CVS)... As an example here are a few neighboring history lines from a test server I have: M3c169e79|bosse|<remote>|BosseTest/Nisse|1.2|CopyofBosse.txt M3c169e79|bosse|<remote>|BosseTest/Nisse|1.2|nissedoc.txt These two lines are from a commit I did and one may suspect the following interpretation of the timestamp: M is a marker telling us that files are modified? I have found these letters as starting chars of a line: A, F, M, O, W Would be interesting to know the meaning of these letters... 3c169e79 might be the 32 bit UNIX time stamp in hex format. In any case I think it represents a timestamp in seconds from some starting time. In this case we have 1008115321 seconds = 31.9 years. Since the log entry was done late last year I think that this confirms that it is a UNIX timestamp. Unix time starts in 1970 and is 32 bit. Then follows username of the person doing the commit, how he is connected, module in which the file resides, new file revision and finally the filename itself. Connection problems You need look no further than the first test. If the machine the person is using cannot reach the server then all else will fail. You can test by going to a command prompt and typing in: ping 184.108.40.206<enter> If there is no reply from the server then you have a networking problem on this PC, not a CVS problem. You MUST be able to ping the server before you can hope to use CVS in pserver mode.
