Hi There,

Having a teething problem and the mobilefish tutorial seems to be based 
on an earlier version; hope someone can point me in the right direction.

Anyway I have just installed CVSNT server  (2.5.01 Travis Build 1976) to 
an upto-date XP Pro box.
Also I am currently connecting to it with a pair of machines running 
TortoiseCVS clients (again latest version 1.8.18).

When I try and access the server when "Server Settings / Run as user" is 
set to [client user]" , tortoiseCVS reports an error writing to 
c:\cvstemp\XYZXYZ. If I change "Server Settings / Run as user"  to 
SERVERNAME\Administrator" everything works fine however there appears to 
be no authentication and hence no security.

The guide mentions adding ACL permissions to /cvstemp for 'system' so 
perhaps i need to do this but I'm not sure how this is done under XP-Pro 
rather than NT/2000.

Thanks for any advice.
