Hi, the following was already discussed on the list, but unfortunately it did not help me. The person ("Babbula") asking the question does not respond to my mail, so I have to ask you people for help. > On Thu, 27 Dec 2001 18:18:16 +0000 (UTC), "Babbula" > <babbula at hotmail.com> wrote: > > >unrecognized auth response from 192.168.168.10: cvs pserver: E cannot open = > >c:/cvs/CVSROOT/config: Permission denied. > > > > This file is accessed before the service drops priviliges, so SYSTEM > needs read access as well as the users.

I have checked the directory tree: Both "System" and "Everyone" have full read/write access to all directories. The CVS repository is on a NT-server in a domain. Is there a way to check if SYSTEM really has access to the config file? What else can I do? The problem is that I am not allowed to touch that server myself. The only person to handle it is our administrator, and he is out of his wits... The command I am trying to issue is to add users for the pserver protocol: C:\>cvs passwd -a haag cvs [passwd aborted]: unrecognized auth response from ALI: cvs server: E cannot open G:/cvs/cvsrepo/TEST/CVSROOT/config: Permission denied C:\>dir g:\cvs\cvsrepo\test\cvsroot\config Directory of g:\cvs\cvsrepo\test\cvsroot 21.11.02 08:43 608 config Thanks for your help!
