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.

If a client is connected via sserver to a CVSNT server with Encryption set
to "Require Encryption" in the Advanced tab, does the client just need to
send "Protocol-encrypt" and everything should be fine (because wrap is a
no-op in sserver)?
This is the impression I got from reading server.c, sserver.c and the
CvsClient document.

Background is that I have a CVS client supporting sserver against CVSNT and
everything is fine unless the server is set to "Require Encryption" or
"Require Authentication". In this case the server i.e. responds "This server
requires an encrypted connection".

The client does not know about "Encryption-Required" etc. pseudo requests
yet and I wonder if it was so easy to get it working the way I guess...
