When I setup CVSNT server, 2 objectives in my mind:

(1) Users (except root) should not have read/ write
permission to the CVS repository through remote
control (for example, telnet)

(2) However, users can checkout/ checkin the files to
CVS repository through CVS pserver. (by using tortoise

For (1), I can just simply set the CVS folder to chmod
700. However, by setting the CVS respository to 700,
this will break (2). User can no longer checkout/
checkin files to CVS repository through CVS pserver

The simplest solution is to disable telnet feature.
However, we do not want to do so. We want the user to
have the ability to remote control, in order to
perform other operations.

Any advice for achieve (1) and (2) at the same time?

Thank you.
