Bo, thanks for your help. But it does not work for me. I add "scheung" as an alias in passwd file, anonymous:yZqwJpuWKwbsI:scheung Now, I got "scheung: no such user". I login as "scheung" on my Window 2000 machine. Then I try add scheung as a separate user in my passwd file. scheung:yZqwJpuWKwbsI and when I run the command "cvs -d c:\cvs passwd" I got this Warning: cvs passwd: *WARNING* CVS user 'scheung' will not be able to log in until they are aliased to a valid system user. Could you please tell me what is the meaning of this warning? "scheung" is my login id, so it is a valid system user. Thanks for your help again.

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 _______________________________________________ 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
