I can't understand your question properly.  If you wnat to add different
clients as cvsuser, then refer CVSNT Installation Tips given on the download
page of CVSNT.  Click on Original. There you'll find also what rights should
give to CVSUser.

Thank you.

Thank you Kinjal for your reply.

btw do you know how to change the browse automatically when user login ?
so if I have directory c:\project which is repository, can I set the client
to browse c:\project directly ?
or CVS concept is just like usual OS login?

The path and the name of the repository you have given in the Service
Control Panel of CVSNT, that only you have to take in Preferences in Unix
Path i.e. e.g. \CVSROOT for :pserver.
You can set CVSUser and not CVSNTUser.  First of all Login as Administrator
to your Computer. To set CVSUser create CVSUser from Control Panel > Users &
Passwords and give them rights which you want to give to access CVSROOT
directory. If you'll not give them Full Access then Take ownership of
directory by your Adminisrtator rights.

About your other questions, I am also seeking for help.
Thank you.

Hi All,

I tried to setting CVSNT server in my computer. There are still some
questions in my head.
NB. CVSNT 2.0.58a for server and for client, WinCVS version Beta 17
(Build 2)

1. I added a directory in [service control panel] - [Repositories], do I
have to set environment CSVROOT?

2. I read CVSNT documentatioin but can not find how-to documentation of
[service control panel] - [advanced] :
     a. what does "Run as User" use  for ?

3. What does Password agent is used for ?
4. How do I add  CVSNT user ? in CVSNT documentation only explain in UNIX
environment. PS. CVSNT documentation from CVSNT installation

5. I already tried set Preference in WinCVS  (client setting)
    authentication : pserver
    path : /Project
    host address :    -----> this my ip address
    username : administrator     ------>  I thought it use Windows login, so
I set it to
   CVSROOT: administrator at

a) I can do login here with the setting, it means the setting is successful
? but why if change the path to C:/Project can not login ?

Error message is :
cvs -d :pserver:cvs at login
Logging in to :pserver:cvs at
cvs [login aborted]: C:/Project: no such repository
***** CVS exited normally with code 1 *****

Thank you for your valuable time and attention, I am waiting for your help.

Thank you in advance.
