Hi all
I installed a cvsnt 2.5 server on a redhat machine and the cvsnt client 2.5
on a w2k machine
I would like to use the passwd command with user aliasing. 
What I did was:

cvsnt passwd -r cvs -a cvsuser1 

This command, as expected, created in passwd file the new entry:


cvs is a "real" user (I can login into the machine via telnet using that).

I can check out, update, and import modules into the repository, but when I
try to commit from the client it says "you are unkown to the system".
Of course, if I create a the real user cvsuser1 everything works fine.

Is it a bug in cvsnt for linux?

Any help aprreciated
