Remote login demands password when none defined - dont want it to anyway
Remote login demands password when none defined - dont want it to anyway?
Thu, 30 Aug 2001 17:52:38 +0100
When I login to a new cvs installation (on a redhat 6.2 linux box)
It demands a password but I dont want it to -
and I dont know what it is either (anyway).
I have played with CVS for about 12 hours
and believe I have read (and re-read) the relevant doc's.
I accept pserver may not be the best method. But I would
like to get it working nevertheless for now.
the relevant line in /etc/inetd.conf is;-
cvspserver stream tcp nowait root /usr/bin/cvs cvs -b /usr/bin
cvspserver is defined ok in /etc/services as;-
I have edited /user/local/repository/CVSROOT/config
so that password authentication is off! ie;-
I have typed;-
initially file /usr/local/repository/CVSROOT/passwd did not exist
and the login failed with the message;-
cvs [login aborted]: recv() from server 192.168.2.247: EOF
when I create a passwd file containing the line
..and other lines.
login also fails with the message
cvs [login aborted]: authorization failed. Server 192.168.2.247 rejected
? Can anyone tell me how to modify this configuration to
work with or without passwords? Security at this stage is NOT an issue!
(Note I can checkout and commit files locally ok by just specifying
a path for $CVSROOT. )
