Hello, I'm using the recently recommended version cvsnt 2.5.03.2382. I need to map the protocol type "extssh" and therefore tried to use protocol_map.ini, because of the error message "the :extssh: access method is not available on this system" Doing this I stumbled across two problems: 1) The state of the file obviously does not reflect the current implementation state, e.g. there exists the mapping gserver = gserver_protocol.dll but there is no gserver_protocol.dll any more. In contrast, those protocol dll's have moved into a separate directory "protocols". So how should be the adapted mapping syntax? 2) Going into the same line, I also found that extssh was already mapped as extssh = ssh_protocol.dll which does not work according to reasons explained in (1) I also noted that there was a careful analysis of this problem by Gernot Hüller found at: http://www.cvsnt.org/pipermail/cvsnt/2007-March/028600.html Unfortunatly it seems that this message was not taken into the account (i.e. it did not become part of the bug tracking system, at least I could not find it in the existing bug list). I would appreciate, if someone could (a) put this error into the bug database (b) if possible: can anyone describe a simple workaround for this problem?(*) Maybe I used the wrong syntax to define the mapping? I tried both of extssh = protocols/ssh.dll and extssh = protocols\ssh.dll but was not successful. Thanks in advance, Daniel Krügler (*) Changing the protocol type inside the .cvs/root file is *not* an option for me, because I use this via two different clients.
