I am attempting to use pserver with cvs (have been using rsh), but am having
some problems. Any help is appreciated.
So far I have done the following -
1. added the following inet entries to the server machine
in /etc/inet/inetd.conf -
cvspserver stream tcp nowait root /opt/cvs/bin/cvs
cvs -f --allow-root=/home/fullcirc/ARMDSYB/lexiscvs/lexis pserver
in /etc/inet/services -
cvspserver 2401/tcp # for cvs passwd auth server
2. forced inetd to reread its config file, and have tested the connection -
listening on port 2401.
3. setup a cvs password file in $CVSROOT/CVSROOT with 1 user 'anonymous' and
no password required.
4. attempt to log into the repository from a client machine, issuing this
prompted for a password -
(Logging in to address@hidden)
which I then enter any password. The following error message is returned -
cvs [login aborted]: unrecognized auth response from loneqlexprodora1: cvs
pserver: No CVSROOT specified! Please use the `-d' option
I'm not sure why this is so. I am specifying a CVSROOT via the -d option.
I've also tried setting $CVSROOT, with no success. As I mentioned, I have
been using this remote repository via rsh for a while, so I know the
repository is ok.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions,
