TARGET  = I want to connect to a CVS installed on a Solaris through a wincvs front End running on a NT m/c.
ERROR    = I can't configure CVS on SOLARIS 2.6. Login Faliure [ Within the solaris - itself ].
                    Please send me a correct  Manual for installation and advice.

Here is what I did so far:

CVS Version I am using:

        Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.11 (client/server)
        Copyright (c) 1989-2000 Brian Berliner, david d `zoo' zuhn, Jeff Polk, and other authors

What I did:

    step 1:   gzip -d cvs-1.11-sol8-sparc-local.gz
    step 2:   pkgadd -d cvs-1.11-sol8-sparc-local

cvs got added to /usr/local/bin

    step 3: Created a user (& group) called: cvs
    step 4: Created a repository:
                cvs -d /usr/local/cvsroot init

    step 5: Changed owner and group of repository and all files to cvs:
                chown -R cvs.cvs /usr/local/cvsroot

    step 6: Created a tcp service by editing /etc/services - add line (NOTE: May already be present):
                cvspserver 2401/tcp #CVS PServer

    step 7: Created a  inetd entry for service by editing /etc/inetd.conf - add following lines:
                # CVS PServer
                cvspserver stream tcp nowait cvs /usr/bin/cvs cvs --allow-root=/usr/local/cvsroot pserver
    step 8: Restarted inetd

    step 9:     Then logged in as the user cvs. [ I added a passwd file on to /usr/local/cvsroot/CVSROOT]

    step 10:    I set the default repository in the environment
                    setenv CVSROOT :pserver:address@hidden:/usr/local/cvsroot
                    [ cvs is the unix user and password is the same as the user name ]

    step 11:    Login:

                    cvs login

                This is what I am getting;

                iNet:/usr/local/bin>cvs login
                (Logging in to address@hidden)
                CVS password:
                cvs [login aborted]: recv() from server EOF


                Connection reset by peer


                broken pipe

Thanks in advance.
