RE: CVS LOGIN ERROR

Hi ,

Thanks for a prompt reply . I appreciate that.

I had tried both the options , I added a user ( & group called cvsusergroup)
and added few existing Unix users (myself,sysadmin ) to this group.

I defined "cvsusergroup" user's home directory as cvsrepository. Also made
that user as owner of that group. Gave --rwe-- permissions to the
repository.

I also have a CVS admin GUI page from where I can add cvs users. I added few
cvs users and defined them to access the files as "cvsusergroup" ... This
added the following lines to $CVSROOT/cvsroort/passwd file

Ibrahim:<password>:cvsusergroup
cvsusergroup:<password>:cvsusergroup.

I am really going crazy with this error. What is the "cvspserver/tcp: bind:
Address already in use" error?

How do we define cvspserver to authenticate the users againt the users in
the passwd file or against the system users?

Thanks
Ibrahim

You want to check for messages from CVS itself, not inetd.

When this happens, the server should log a message under the DAEMON
facility that says either "login refused for <repository>" (which
indicates that the specified repository isn't valid) or "login failure
(for <repository>)" (which indicates that either the username or
passwordisn't valid).  In the later case, if your system has an AUTHPRIV
facility, it will also log a message there containing the username and
password.  Since it looks like the specified repository exactly matches
the --allow-root= option in inetd.conf, I'd say either the username or
password isn't right: are you using a $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/passwd file or
system authorization?
