RE: Connecting to a CVS-server on port *2402*

Hi Larry (and other repliers)

I did consider changing the standard IBM setup, but gave it up (David
Thornley's reply explains excactly why - thank you, David). 
I'm no AIX expert and I want to sleep at night... so I went for a free port.

Personally I think that when a program *insists* on using a certain port it
is as annoying as when a program insists on installing in a certain
directory on your C:-drive! 

And to wrap it all up: I understand from Derek Price that a future release
of CVS will allow you to change the port, so for now I'll just build a
patched version and wait...


PS. Sorry that I've created two threads on the same issue - if this creates
yet another thread I hope someone will explain a beginner how to avoid it
