So, I'm actually using pserver. Here is a log of what I am seeing: cvs -d :pserver:jkoenig at some_host.com:/projects/cvsroot login Logging in to :pserver:jkoenig at some_host.com:/projects/cvsroot Locating: Z:\projects\some\path\to\file.c Z:/projects/some/path/to/file.c ***** CVS exited normally with code 0 ***** cvs update -p -r 18.104.22.168 -- file.c (in directory Z:\projects\some\path\to\file) cvs [update aborted]: Local access to network share not supported (Use -N to override this error). ***** CVS exited normally with code 1 ***** cvs diff -- file.c (in directory Z:\projects\some\path\to\file) cvs [diff aborted]: Local access to network share not supported (Use -N to override this error). Any help would be appreciated. ________________________________ From: Arthur Barrett [mailto:arthur.barrett at march-hare.com] Sent: Wed 6/20/2007 3:10 PM To: Joseph Koenig; cvsnt at cvsnt.org Subject: RE: [cvsnt] cvs [diff aborted]: Local access to network share not supported (use -N to override this error) Joseph, You are using :local: - this is only for internal developers of CVS/CVSNT to use - never use it for project work. In addition you are usint :local: to access a network drive which as you know is unsupported. Instead set up a proper cvsnt (or the older cvs) server so you can use :pserver:hostname:/repo or :ssh:hostname:/repo or :ext:hostname:/repo intead. This is easy to do and only should take a few minutes, then your linux and windows work will be a lot safer and more reliably versioned. This page is a little out of date but gives you the gist - ask here on the newsgroup if you get stuck setting up a server: http://www.cvsnt.org/wiki/InstallationLinux Regards, Arthur Barrett > -----Original Message----- > From: cvsnt-bounces at cvsnt.org > [mailto:cvsnt-bounces at cvsnt.org] On Behalf Of Joseph Koenig > Sent: 21 June 2007 07:37 > To: cvsnt at cvsnt.org > Subject: [cvsnt] cvs [diff aborted]: Local access to network > share not supported (use -N to override this error) > > > I have searched the archives and realize that this is > preceived to be dangerous.
