I have had an interesting problem, that I haven't been able to work
around... Let me start off that I have tried several versions of cvs
including the newest snapshot (1.11, I believe), the one from
sunfreeware.com, and the cvs version from last week sometime.
I have a new Solaris 8 installation. I installed cvs on it. I was not able
to checkout anything from my repository using pserver. So, I tried a couple
of the graphical cvs programs... jCVS, javaCVS... SmartCVS... They were all
able to work... I could do a status and an update, however, with cvs once
one of the other programs checked something out.
So, I tried a couple of other things.. Along the way, I discovered that I
could checkout from repositories that weren't mine. So, I could check out
mozilla and ccvs. So, I decided to set up a couple of more repositories,
now wondering if it was my server. Nope, still no go. When I did a cvs co
<project>, it would just sit there and hang. However, I did discover that I
could checkout from the local pserver.
So, James Youngman suggested I do a truss on cvs to see what it was doing.
When he looked at the results, he thought that it was not hitting the
network. I later verified that with a sniffer. However, it did hit the
network when I did an update or status, or even a login.
So, I decided, that since I can check things out from the internet, what if
I set up a repository on a totally seperate (private t1) network. So, I set
that up.. It worked!!
So, now I am wondering if cvs has an issue with my networking... My
client's ip address is 10.14.1.72/24. My server's ip address is
10.14.246.101/24. That doesn't work... So, I made a new test server. It's
ip address is 192.168.40.51. That one does work... Plus, I can check out
from anything from beyond my firewall... So, I am wondering if cvs is
getting confused because of the class
A network being split by a 24 bit subnetmask... Is it misreading something
from the OS? Because my linux boxes work just fine...
