Download source (for Debian from /usr/src/, #apt-get source cvsnt) 2. Find genkey script (for Debian, located in /usr/src/cvsnt-2.5.03.2382/contrib) 3. Run genkey (creates cert and key: aimsnet.crt and aimsnet.key in my case) 4. Move created cert and key to /etc/cvsnt 5. Update /etc/cvsnt/PServer: CertificateFile=/etc/cvsnt/aimsnet.crt PrivateKeyFile=/etc/cvsnt/aimsnet.key Now I can access cvsnt from local command line or remotely using TortoiseCVS. -- Chris Purves
