But if all machines are the NT class then you can use the :ntserver: protocol for connection and in that case login will be automatic. What you need is only this: Every account you are using from the other machines must have a duplicate on the server machine with the same password. This is easy to set up and after it is done you should be OK to just use CVSNT from any machine without actually using the login function of WinCvs. (Note that with :ntserver: you are not even supposed to log in...) Answers to your questions: 1. No login CVS is really meant to be used on systems requiring login, but if you do as above then the login you supply when you start working on a machine will be used also for CVS. 2. CVSNT and WinCvs on same machine No problems, I do this all the time. Just specify the :ntserver: protocol and type your machine's name in the login string (CVSROOT). Don't listen to people telling you about the problems, because they are caused by using the :local: protocol directly to the repository files (and that can cause problems). 3. Impersonation This is a new feature in CVSNT 1.11.x and it means that when you use the :pserver: protocol to login (here you MUST actually log in to CVS) then the username you give is checked against the machine account database and if OK then CVS will make all file operations as this user. CVS impersonates the user that logged in via :pserver: This is actually quite handy if your client machines are W95/98/ME since they do not support *real* NT style logins and are not trusted for the :ntserver: protocol. What will happen if all boxes are unchecked? Well here I don't know since I myself am running CVSNT 1.10.8, which does not come with any control panel application (and no impersonation either). /Bo (Bo Berglund, developer in Sweden) _______________________________________________ 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
