ACLMode=normal sets the behaviour to 'noone has access unless specifically granted access'. > I ran cvs chacl -R -r TEST_BRANCH -a > read,nowrite,nocreate,notag,nocontrol cvs_test/ Again - you are overdoing it, you just want to grant read access. > I then tried to checkout cvs_test from the TEST_BRANCH, but > it returned > an error stating I cannot read cvs_test Yes all the deny rules are confusing the issue. > I am running CVSNT 2.5.03 Build 2382 on Windows Server 2003 with SP2 This release is very old - 2.5.05 is currently in testing, I strongly recommend the upgrade.
