HI: First, please don't reply to my private address, use the list address instead so others can benefit or help out... Unfortunately the CVSNT list is designed such that by replyiing to a message you relpy only to the person that posted that message. You need to do a "reply all" and then remove the individual addresses manualla just keeping the list address. Other lists do not do this so thta is probably why you are posting only to the author of the message. A tip here is to instead use the news server at cvsnt.org, it serves out both the cvsgui (wincvs) list and the cvsnt list and here replies of course are only posted to the newsserver. Concerming your question: Depending on which protocol you use the CVS users either must have a valid account (sspi) or can be impersonated into using a single valid account (pserver). But at least this account must in fact exist. None of these accounts need (or should) be an admin account. CVS users are ordinary users and don't need admin priviliges on the server. You can gine some accounts CVS admin priviliges (which is a property entirely withing CVS only) by adding them to the CVSROOT/admin file. /Bo >On Wed, 17 Dec 2003 12:11:39 -0800 (PST), Shravan Durvasula ><s_k_d_23 at yahoo.com> wrote: >Is it true that all of the users on my CVSNT server should also >have an account on the actual windows machine that is running the >CVSNT server?

The remote machines that talk to my CVSNT server currently have "WINCVS 1.3" as their client. But this needs administrative privileges to be installed. So, is there a client available for CVSNT server that does not need admin privileges to be installed?
