Hello everyone,

I have just installed CVSNT and i'm reading  the manual and I'm trying to set it up.

Everything went well. I have a repository named MyRepo at E:\Repositories\MyRepo, I have 2 projetcts inside it.
I can make checkout, checkin.

But now I am at the Security chapter. Until now everybody could connect to my CVSNT server.

Following the manual:

    1.  I denied free acces  by setting the AclMode to normal in the CVSROOT/config file. I tested and indeed, noone is allowed to do checkout anymore.

    2. I added a user:
            C:\Documents and Settings\Mihaela>cvs passwd -a Andrei
            Adding user Andrei
            New Password:
            Verify Password:
            cvs passwd: *WARNING* CVS user 'Andrei' will not be able to log in until they are aliased to a valid system user.

    3. I tried to give everyone the right to read the projects. So I went in E:\Repositories\MyRepo and:
            E:\Repositories\MyRepo>cvs chacl -a read prj1 prj2
            cvs chacl: ignoring prj1 (CVS/Repository missing)
            cvs chacl: ignoring prj2 (CVS/Repository missing)


What is this??? I checked the manual and I cound't fing anything usefull.

Can anyone help me?
Thank you very much!
