Hi Arthur, Sorry for not being very clear, The CVS server has been installed on the WindowsXP machine and i have the tortoise SSH client version running on my PC. I have been using the GUI to checkout and commit to the CVS from the client. So im quite aware of how to checkout and commit to the branch/HEAD. The problem now is i know only these basic stuffs of CVS & have been given the task of setting up access permissions to the HEAD so that any inadvertent committing of files does not happen on the HEAD. When i tried to set access permissions from my client pc i got an error message saying no permiss cvs server: User 'gromer' cannot modify permissions for /Product_1/folder1 on tag/branch PRODUCT_! So i tried on the CVS server... and being the first time to do this.. i have no idea whats happening. I have never tried checking out files from the server.. it looks quire different.
