Your repository shouldn't be available on a network share - basically hide it so only administrators can get at it (assuming the users can't log into the box directly). If you don't even want anyone to have commit rights you can lock down the permissions then set LockDir or LockServer appropriately. Also you can switch off impersonation and only give rights to LocalSystem, which works in the case that you can't reasonably deny access any other way (be aware though that this also causes scripts to run as LocalSystem which may be a security risk). > CVS: 220.127.116.11 beta 3 (build 44) That's really ancient... I'd strongly suggest you upgrade. Tony
