RE: Pserver command

It's working now....I had to manually create a .cvspass file in my home
directory to execute the cvs login command first using pserver. I was then
able to execute cvs commands after the CVSROOT env variable was set
appropriately. The password I used to login was the plaintext version of the
password in the passwd file.

We are using CVS 1.11.6. Normally isn't the .cvspass created by CVS? Or is
this is a bug in this version? Has it been fixed in later versions? Thanks.

Ummm... what exactly do you mean by "the same password as in the passwd
file"? Do you mean you typed exactly what the passwd file contains?

The CVSROOT/passwd file contains a strongly-encrypted form of the password,
not the trivially-encrypted form in the ~/.cvspass file, nor the plain-text

What was the exact error message you got?
