  I know the passwd file is updated, I have had the new passwd file checkout
with CVSROOT, I've deleted the directory and checked it out again to get the
file.  When I have done the update the changes show up there.

check in your actualy cvs tree and make sure the passwd file that is there
is the one you want.
the passwd file is not included in the checkout/commit of CVSROOT.
According to the CVS docs, it's so you don't have a bunch of (old) passwd
files littering peoples' directories, which they forgot to remove... which
could be a security problem.  So edit the passwd file directly from the

  I tried looking within the archives for a similar problem, but couldn't
find anything similar.

  My problem:
  I have built the CVS 1.11 version on Solaris 2.6, have changed the line in
config to SystemAuth=no, and added the passwd file, with an anonymous user
to run as me on the server (anonymous::mfurmani).  Then checked in the
config and passwd file to make sure the administration files have been
updated.  I know I have the server set up correctly as I can log in as
myself using my system password, the client is CVS 1.9 and has worked fine
as myself.

  However, if I try to use the passwd file I either get an incorrect
password error if I change my password to be read from the passwd file in
CVS, or if I try to login as the anonymous user I get a stranger error - 
cvs [login aborted]: unrecognized auth response from
E Fatal error, aborting.

  Is there another configuration I need to make?  I didn't see anything else
within the documentation about setting up pserver any different than I have.
