Re: Problems running cvs pserver

after some configuration changes here is the output from the jCVS client
connection test

CVSClient.SENDLine: '/imiwebdb/dynamodata/cvsroot'
CVSClient.SENDLine: 'dynamo'
CVSClient.SENDLine: 'Aea=ed<1"o'
CVSClient.READLine: 'cvs pserver: No CVSROOT specified!  Please use the
`-d' option'
AUTHENTICATE: REPLY: 'cvs pserver: No CVSROOT specified!  Please use the
`-d' option'

I get the same response if I telnet to the port i.e.  The connection
terminates immediately with the

Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
cvs pserver: No CVSROOT specified!  Please use the `-d' option
cvs [pserver aborted]: or set the CVSROOT environment variable.
Connection closed by foreign host.

My question is: Why does the cvs pserver command require a CVSROOT variable
to be set if it gets this from the client connection?

Does that include a newline?  If you telnet to the port and hit return,
you should get:

           cvs [pserver aborted]: bad auth protocol start:

If you don't, there's something wrong with your CVS executable.  I'd
suggest downloading the current version (1.11.1p1) from
