Has anyone found any cvs clients that will work on a Linux box using the sspi? If not, how do I get around the fact that my CVSNT server is setup to use sspi? I searched the news groups and haven't been able to find the answer. (I found several people asking the same questions with no replies.) Thanks for the help, Curtis Lehman [cvsnt] Instructions for use of sspi with a Linux client Marc Paterno paterno at fnal.gov Fri May 28 17:09:44 BST 2004 * Previous message: [cvsnt] Re: problem with checkout / permissions? * Next message: [cvsnt] Do we need to worry about Security Alert TA04-147A? * Messages sorted by: [ date ] [ thread ] [ subject ] [ author ] Hello, I am trying to contact a CVSNT server from a Linux client. The server runs on a PC running Windows XP. I may not use the 'pserver' protocol. I have been trying to get the 'sspi' protocol working, with limited success. I am able to contect the repository from the machine that runs the server using 'sspi'. I have not been able to contact the server from a Linux client. On Linux, I am using the client from CVSNT 2.0.41a. I do not understand several things: (1) What username should be specified? Is this a Windows account, or a "cvs account"? (2) Is a "cvs login" required? If so, what password (Windows account, or "cvs account")? (3) Are there any additional setup tasks needed on Linux? To better illustrate my level of (lack of) success, here is my current interaction with the server from my Linux client: bash$ cvs -d :sspi:cvslocal@<mymachine>:/cygwin/usr/local/cvsroot login Logging in to :sspi:cvslocal@<mymachine>:2401:/cygwin/usr/local/cvsroot (where <mymachine> is to be replaced by the name of the PC from which the repository is served. Any pointers to existing documentation, or a brief explanation, would be most welcome. thanks Marc * Previous message: [cvsnt] Re: problem with checkout / permissions? * Next message: [cvsnt] Do we need to worry about Security Alert TA04-147A? * Messages sorted by: [ date ] [ thread ] [ subject ] [ author ] More information about the cvsnt mailing list Curtis Lehman Senior Software Engineer Carrier Access Ph: 303.218.5695 Cell: 303.898.9758 E-Mail: clehman at CarrierAccess.com
