Hi Bo, Thanks, your suggestion was of some help. The following worked for me : - Select a folder - in the command window : cvs logout - in the command window : cvs -d :pserver:....... login Entered new passwd in the popup dialog. - in the command window : cvs -d :pserver..... update - in the command window : cvs -d :pserver..... log -N ..... The following did not work - in the command window : cvs update ..... It fails saying authorization failed.... Looks like it is not storing the new password. I need to use the -d option for every command run in the command window. Also if I choose a file /folder in the upper window and do a mouse right click -> update it gives the "authorization failed" mesg again. Looks like I need to use the command window to run all commands. I use WinCVS 126.96.36.199 Thanks, Shashi.
