I think :local: is only safe if you've only got one user as I don't think it does much locking of access. I expect someone from March-Hare might clarify this. For serious use, I think you should use a server. If there's any money at all available for this you might get the basic CVS Suite from March Hare and read the eBook that comes with it. Of course if there's lots of money available you can get March Hare to sort it out for you ;-) Helpfully, Maybe, Richard. -----Original Message----- From: cvsnt-bounces at cvsnt.org [mailto:cvsnt-bounces at cvsnt.org] On Behalf Of bwhicks at aep.com Sent: 20 October 2006 16:18 To: cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook Subject: Re: [cvsnt] linux host, and ACLs cvsnt-bounces at cvsnt.org wrote on 10/20/2006 10:57:51 AM: > Use :pserver: (or whatever) to access localhost.

It's all local.
