You need to add a repository > using the control panel. It certainly should not! ;-) I do have a repository set up and thanks to Bo I've discovered what the problem is. I set up a directory in e:\cvstest (a NTFS drive) but I had a valid repository of '/' which I've been told by Bo is not allowed. So when I set it to '/test' it all worked. So I have to ask why CVSNT allows illegal locations to be entered which produced this weird '--allow-root in inetd.conf' error? -- Stuart Halliday ECS Technology IT Support stuarth at ecs-tech.com Phone : 0131 331 6261
