Larry, Peter, Jim,

Thank you for your help.  Larry, based upon your guidance the two steps
are straight forward.

$ cvs update -j 1.2 -j 1.1 file1
$ cvs commit -m test

However, when I ran the update command I'm getting Permission denied.

/usr/local/bin% cvs update -j 1.2 -j 1.1
permission denied
cvs [update aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages if
I'm using csh and the CVSROOT is set to:

I've never executed any cvs command from the shell before since we use
cvs through the GUI interface with this connection
:extssh:address@hidden:/opt/prodcvs.  I also tried putting in the same
connection that I connected with the GUI
:extssh:address@hidden:/opt/prodcvs and I'm getting this error.

/usr/local/bin% cvs update -j 1.2 -j 1.1
cvs update: Unknown method (`extssh') in CVSROOT.
cvs [update aborted]: Bad CVSROOT: `:extssh:address@hidden:/opt/prodcvs'.

Please advise and thank you for your help.

Neither of those suggestions is very good -- the first doesn't work at
all and the second is more complex than necessary and subject to error. 
Please see the manual for the correct method:

He's just jealous because I accomplish so much more than he does. --
