Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

I see from the FAQ that CVSNT only works on shared folders if you only 
use pserver and disable impersonation.  Unfortunately that pretty much 
kills most of our justification for moving from Unix CVS (being able to 
control access via Windows file permissons).

I didn't see any justification for why it can't work so I don't know if 
it's just a hard feature to implement correctly or if there are reasons 
that it can never work properly.

If it's just hard to do properly my company would be willing to pay 
someone to have this feature implemented, if it can be done in such a 
way that is is incorporated into the main CVSNT tree.

If someone could let me know if this is feasible or not I would much 
appreciate it.
