Another way is to change the line in passwd to: anonymous:yZqwJpuWKwbsI:sam where 'sam' of course it your account name. This will accept the anonymous login and cause anonymous to wor on the system in your name.... It is called 'aliasing' the cvs user to the real user. Also note that you don't need to manipulate the passwd file directly, you can use the 'cvs passwd' command instead. /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
