Hi all, I'm trying to connect over SSH to our CVSNT server from a Linux CVSNT client but get a message from the server that it requires an encrypted connection, which I believe is the case. "Require Encryption" is enabled on the server. We use SSPI for the Windows machines (system_auth=yes accordingly for the repository). Server: CVSNT 2.5.01 [Travis] Build 1976, Win2K Server SP4 Client: CVSNT 2.5.01 [Travis] Build 1910 Standalaone, I can SSH into the server just fine, and that appears to be the case for the CVSNT client as well, since it is able to run "CVS server" and pass the resulting error message back. 1) What am I doing wrong that it thinks the connection isn't encrypted, or is there a bug here? 2) Are there any other (encrypted) protocols available with a Linux client, short of making "big" changes (e.g. GSSAPI) to the server? In the following, "pandora" is the server and "resolute" is the Linux client machine ("user" and "repoalias" substituted in place of the real names): user at resolute viseon]$cvsnt -x -d :ext:user at pandora:/repoalias ls user at pandora's password: cvsnt [ls aborted]: cvs.exe [server aborted]: This server requires an encrypted connection Same results without the "-x". I believe this was not an issue before we upgraded from 2.0.58d. Like recent posts, we are also seeing CVS operations take an excessive amount of time to complete after the last upgrade or two (to either 2.5.01.*). Thanks, Brent
