Hi, I have happily been running CVSNT Server (CVSNT Service 2.0.51d) locally on my Windows XP machine and now Windows Vista for my own use for three years. (I know its an old version but it has been working prefectly so I have no desire to upgrade it possibly encountering new issues). I now have a labtop (Apple mac 10.5) and would like to be able to access my repository on my local network but are having difficulties, my repository is stored at C:/Apps/SourceControl/CVSServer/Repository (this folder contains a CVSROOT folder and the various cvs projects within it, and I created a passwd file with the single entry of anonymous: From MacCvsX 3.3b2 I try the login command for the CVSROOT of :pserver:anonymous at 192.168.2.50:C:/Apps/SourceControl/CVSServer/Repository and enter blnnk passwd and this is the output cvs -d :pserver:anonymous at 192.168.2.50:C:/Apps/SourceControl/CVSServer/Repository login Logging in to :pserver:anonymous at 192.168.2.50:2401:C:/Apps/SourceControl/CVSServer/Repository cvsnt [login aborted]:C:/Apps/SourceControl/CVSServer/Repository:no such repository mind you I also get the same error if I use a nonsenical user such as cvs -d :pserver:anonnnn at 192.168.2.50:C:/Apps/SourceControl/CVSServer/Repository login or a real Windows Vista user such as cvs -d :pserver:paul at 192.168.2.50:C:/Apps/SourceControl/CVSServer/Repository login so its not clear to be whether it is the repository or the user that is causing the problem. I have tried telnet 192.168.2.50 2410, and typing foo and it correctly returns 'cvs [server aborted]:bad auth protocol start:foo showing the CVSNT is running correctly as a service on the correct port. I thought the problem might be with format of the repository path so I tried logging in using WinCVS 188.8.131.52 from my Vista machine that is running CVSNT (but as if I was connecting to a remote service rather than a local service) using this CVSRoot cvs -d :pserver:anonymous at 192.168.2.50:C:\Apps\SourceControl\CVSServer\Repository login Output is essentially the same cvs -d :pserver:anonymous at 192.168.2.50:C:\Apps\SourceControl\CVSServer\Repository login Logging in to :pserver:anonymous at 192.168.2.50:2401:C:\Apps\SourceControl\CVSServer\Repository cvs [login aborted]: C:\Apps\SourceControl\CVSServer\Repository: no such repository Please, what am I missing here in setting this up thanks Paul
