Hello, After some gnawing of teeth and pulling out of hair, I've managed to generate a new SSL certificate and get it working with cvsnt. Observation: if the cvsnt server is configured for encryption to be required, I'm seeing that I can login successullly using the pserver access method, but when I try to do anything I get the 'This server requires an encrypted connection' error. Wouldn't it make more sense to return this error at the login stage rather than later on... Question: When connecting to a server and authenticating the certificate, is it possible to somehow at the client end see some details of the server's certificate? I'm thinking I'd somehow be able to do something like issue a command like "cvs whoisthesever" and be given a dump of some of the elements in the cert (such as the CN, and who the CA is - or perhaps this should happen if specifying the -t option?). Question: is it possible to do mutual authentication using sserver/sspi? Enhancement: It would be quite handy is cvsnt would check for CA certificates not only in the ca.pem file, but also in the Windows certificate store. Enhancement: I would like to be able to set up my cvsnt server so that the encryption/compression settings could be done on a per repository basis, instead of a global basis. This would therefore allow anonymous access (over pserver) to some of the repositories whilst the others could be appropriately secured (using sspi or sserver). Greetings from Luxembourg, David.
