Michael, Putting the password in the connection string is a rather risky practice (security wise). Is it possible to use sspi instead (which will automatically pick up the authentication token - including password - of the logged in user) if the server is windows or ssh with a key if the server is non-windows? The only alternative is to use: set CVSROOT=:pserver:domain\username at server_name:portNo/repository cvs login -p pas at word Regards, Arthur -----Original Message----- From: cvsnt-bounces at cvsnt.org on behalf of Michael Eldridge Sent: Wed 6/3/2009 9:59 AM To: cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook Cc: Subject: [cvsnt] CVS Login Password with @ in it Hi all, I have been trying to write some script files to assist with some of the common tasks we do in CVS and I have it a snag. I have been using the following command to setup the connection string: set CVSROOT=:pserver:domain\username:password at server_name:portNo/repository This works fine for most users but I now have someone that is using the @ symbol in their password. EG set CVSROOT=:pserver:domain\username:p at ssword@server_name:portNo/repository This obviously causes a problem with the string passing. Unfortunately the password structure used by this company means that a lot of users will probably have this symbol in their password. Is there and escape character I can use to get around this problem? Thanks. _______________________________________________ cvsnt mailing list cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook http://www.cvsnt.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/cvsnt https://www.march-hare.com/cvspro/en.asp#downcvs Upgrade to CVS Suite for more features and support: http://march-hare.com/cvsnt/
