Gaurav, > can you please tell me whether the following is correct? > > server_args = -f --allow-root=/usr/local/cvsrep authserver No it is incorrect. The server_args should be just as in this example: http://web.archive.org/web/20080213041444/http://www.cvsnt.org/wiki/Inst allationLinux > cvs [login aborted]: authorization failed: server 10.5.68.161 rejected access to /usr/local/cvsrep/ for user cvs That is a different error to the subject of this thread. The error "authorization failed" usually means that you are not authorized, common causes are: * wrong passord * incorrect SystemAuth setting in /usr/local/cvsrep/CVSROOT/config * problem with /usr/local/cvsrep/CVSROOT/passwd Instead of all bother with pserver (which is not recommended anyway) just try ssh: cvs -d :ssh:myuser at 10.5.68.161:/usr/local/cvsrep/ rls Where 'myuser' is a REAL login to 10.5.68.161 (ie: one that can be used with ssh).
