The connect root is wrong: pserver needs a middle part as user at server like :pserver:mike at cobra:c:/cvsrepo/pc And the directory nesting of repositories is OK, just give a valid repository root here (don't confuse this with the module path, that is coming later). A valid reposttory directory is one that has a properly initialized /CVSROOT subdirectory and that CVSNT is set up to serve in the registry. /Bo -----Original Message----- From: christian chatelain [mailto:christian.chatelain at atosorigin.com] Sent: den 8 mars 2002 08:04 To: cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook Subject: Re: [Cvsnt] Installation of CVSNT Blair Christensen a écrit : > Is there anyone who has a COMPLETE set of installation instructions for > installing both the server and the client for CVS?

If I change the > repository to /cvs or c:/cvs, the command freaks out and doesn't execute. I have the same problem when trying to access a repository located on a NT platform. The platform from which i try to connect is a Unix one. For me the following command succeed: cvs -d :pserver:mw_rw:/d//cvsrr login where d:\cvsrr is my repository path. Before this i have try different solutions as cvs -d :pserver:log_name:@mw_rw:/d//cvsrr login but none works. I don't know also how could be named in this command_line a repository located more deeper, for example one located on d:\cvsrr\repository. I tried cvs -d :pserver:mw_rw:/d//cvsrr/repository login it didn't work, then cvs -d :pserver:mw_rw:/d//cvsrr\\repository login it didn't work too. Any suggestion will be welcomed. _______________________________________________ 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
