This is done in two steps: 1. Install and start the lockserver service (is probably already done) 2. Enable the lockserver by checking out and modifying the CVSROOT/config file from each repository served by your CVSNT server: Put this line into the file: LockServer=localhost:2402 Still the users and SYSTEM needs permission to write the intermediate files into the repository itself, but the handling of the lockfiles will be solved by the lockserver. /Bo (Bo Berglund, developer in Sweden)
