Re: rejecteed when logging with passwd apparently OK

I restarted xinetd after config, and it isn't working yet.

when using wincvs 1.1, cvsroot = :pserver:address@hidden:/work/cvs/
method = passwd file on cvs server.

The password is not accepted, whereas it is the same as cvs server
and login is OK on cvs server with the same *user* : login aborted,
connection refused.
I use the same config for xinetd as yours, with -d option to specify

Some questions about your CVS config :

1. How does cvs know its cvsroot if you only pass PATH variable to it,
and without -d option as parameter?

2. Is there simple ways to use a different passwd file ? I heard of perl
doing the job.
