If that is what you tell CVSNT to tell the user then CVSNT will tell the
user that ;)

Someone has set an ACL and set "Prohibited from access by your
personal..." as the message when the ACL is triggered, to view the ACL
use a command like this:

cvs -d :sspi:cafp1:/usr/local/cvs/caf rlsacl

The ACL could be on any directory and you will need to 'rlsacl' each
directory to find the one with the ACL, ie:
cvs -d :sspi:cafp1:/usr/local/cvs/caf rlsacl
cvs -d :sspi:cafp1:/usr/local/cvs/caf rlsacl
cvs -d :sspi:cafp1:/usr/local/cvs/caf rlsacl suites/AEP.COG.FUEL.FELPM
cvs -d :sspi:cafp1:/usr/local/cvs/caf rlsacl suites
cvs -d :sspi:cafp1:/usr/local/cvs/caf rlsacl .
