Hello, I have installed and (I think) correctly configured CVSNT on my Windows XP machine. Now I want to use it for a simple web application project which I am developing using Eclipse. I am having trouble getting the repository location to validate when I try to add it using Eclipse's CVS repository explorer - it tells me that it has an I/O exception, the connection is refused and there is no such repository. I am not sure if my CVSNT installation and configuration is to blame, or if I am using the wrong validation (protocol/username/password) within Eclipse. Here's what I've done to install and configure CVSNT, please let me know if this looks kosher: 1. Install CVSNT - run cvsnt-2.0.26.exe 2. Created a directory C:\cvsrepo 3. Set the CVSROOT system environment variable Start -> My Computer -> Properties -> Advanced -> Environment Variables CVSROOT == C:\cvsrepo 4. Restarted computer 5. Started the CVSNT Service Control Panel Start -> All Programs -> CVSNT -> Service Control Panel 6. Stopped the CVSNT service 7. Created a repository root under C:\cvsrepo (the repository prefix) Repositories -> Add -> C:\cvsrepo\eclipse 8. Clicked OK, and the /eclipse root showed up as a valid repository root 9. Started the CVSNT server 10. With Cygwin bash I did the following: $ set cvsroot=:ntserver:JamesAdams:/eclipse (the name of the computer is "JamesAdams") $ cvs passwd -a -r "James" "adminuser" Adding user adminuser New password: ****** Verify password: ****** $ set cvsroot=:pserver:adminuser at JamesAdams:/eclipse $ cvs login cvs [login aborted]: The :local: protocol does not support the login command $ cvs info Available protocols: ext ext 2.0.26 fork fork 2.0.26 gserver gserver 2.0.26 (Active Directory) pserver pserver 2.0.26 server server 2.0.26 sserver sserver 2.0.26 ssh ssh 2.0.26 sspi sspi 2.0.26 $ cvs ls -l -R (appears to work fine, showing all files under C:/cvsrepo) So it seems that the server is running fine, since I can issue various "cvs" commands, but I'm not sure how to tell if I have set up the security correctly. It seems to not be right since I can't do a login (it gives the error mesage about the :local protocol), and Eclipse never validates no matter what I use as username/password. There is an entry in the C:\cvsrepo\CVSROOT\passwd file for the user I added using "cvs passwd" command above. When I use Eclipse to create a repository location it offers pserver, ext and sshext as connection types, but none of these seem to work with a multitude of username/password combinations (even "anonymous" with no password) - so I am stumped as to whether or not I have actually finished with the CVSNT setup (especially the security features), or if the CVSNT server is now fine and the problem has more to do with Eclipse. The CVSNT manual doesn't give me much to work with, so I am hoping that some kind soul will give me some more clues. What can I do to verify that I have the correct security in place ? Is there some way to verify that I have everything set up correctly so that I can begin using Eclipse as the client ? Any help will be greatly appreciated, as I have already spent hours trying to get this to work and I have had only frustration as my reward. Thanks in advance for any feedback! -James __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? Yahoo! Finance: Get your refund fast by filing online. http://taxes.yahoo.com/filing.html
