I am confused with lot of access methods available with CVSNT to access
remote repository ( SSH , Pserver , Sserver , sspi , GSSAPI , SSH ,
etc.. ).I will explain my requirement .
I want to run CVSNT on a Linux machine . I am using Windows 2003 AD
server as a workgroup server . So , my all users ( username and password
) are defined here . I want use these same AD username and password
credentials to access CVSNT repository on Linux ( locally & remotely )
. To achieve this task , i configured Samba winbind on Linux . By using
Samba winbind , I can authenticate to this Linux machine by using AD
username and password credentials .
-- My users are using Windows XP2 ( On the desktop side ) . They want
to use the same username and password credentials to access the CVSNT
repository ( On Linux machine ) . On the desktop side, which GUI client
that i need to use to achieve this task ? . And with respect to this ,
what are the things that need to configure on the server side ( Linux
-- On the Linux side , what are the thing that i need to enable ? .
Which one , among several access methods , will suite my requirement ?
-- My users want web access . They want to check in, check out, etc ..
through web browser . Is this is possible ?
-- As i learned from the documentation is that , by using sserver , the
communication between client ( Windows XP ) and server ( Linux ) will be
encrypted . What are the steps that i need to follow to configure
sserver on CVSNT Linux server ?
Please , anyone give the suggestions to above mentioned problems .
Thanks & Regards,
