It is almost never required to have the lockserver on a separate server to the main cvsnt server. > Then I found an "outstanding bug" for Debian: "cvsnt: cvslockd crashes at > startup": From the comments they had an invalid network configuration (their hostname->ip address lookup returned 127.0.0.1, so it was impossible for software to find out the IP address of the machine). 2382 used to detect this and display the error but still fall over later.. that was fixed a while back. > cvs init: connect to NewServer(NewServer):2402 failed: Connection refused Probably 'NewServer' isn't running a lockserver. As mentioned before, don't try to put lockserver on a different machine like that unless you have an already working server to start with - there are too many things that need configuring first - eg. lockserver itself won't listen on public IPs by default. Multi-machine servers although possible (with a SAN) aren't something that is very common. cvs.cvsnt.org runs on a 64bit debian box btw. so that configuration probably has more testing than most. Tony
