Your CVS server needs to run as a server and your clients need to connect using :sspi: or :pserver: protocols. Using :local: over a network will (eventually - guarenteed) corrupt your repository. The "cvsroot" should be like: :sspi:nw-syd1:/vol1/home/minet/cvsroot Or :pserver:user at nw-syd1:/vol1/home/minet/cvsroot Note: just because your repository physically resides at /vol1/home/minet/cvsroot does not mean that is the correct "logical" name - you'll need to check. If it's been some time since you upgraded the server then it would be worthwhile doing that too, the current version is 2.5.03.2382: http://www.cvsnt.org/wiki/ Regards, Arthur Barrett
