Tony, I have now instelled the latest CVSNT from your site and tried to get it going. - I am doing this on a new PC where I have installed XP-Pro - I have copied my old test repository to this new PC - I have installed CVSNT from the distribution - I have used the Control panel applet to configure CVSNT - I have changed the TEMP variable to point at E:\temp and restarted I have discovered the following very strange behaviour: Only if I check both listen to TCP/IP and named pipe is it possible to start CVSNT service. To my mind this means that pserver cannot be switched off. - In control panel I have specifically added the repository copies I had from my old server to the new CVSNT. There are files in that repository in several test modules. Results: - When I use the ntserver protocol to attach to the server it fails 100% of the times. Doesn't matter if from the command prompt or using WinCvs1.3. - If I add a passwd file to the CVSROOT it still fails. - If I add myself as a user in passwd but enter a completely wrong password, then I am accepted to do a command line checkout! - In this condition I can also check out from WinCvs This of course raises a few questions: 1. Why is CVSROOT\passwd needed if I am connected using ntserver over the named pipe?? I assumed that passwd is used when the connection is via pserver... 2. Why is the ntserver connection accepted if the user (me) is named in the passwd file, but with a completely bogus password? 3. Why is the CVSNT service not started if I disable the listening on the TCPIP port in the control panel applet? I thought that it was possible to have CVSNT *only* accept calls via ntserver by unchecking this setting.... Strange.... /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
