set up of a cvs server

Post by Demetriu » Tue, 31 Aug 1999 04:00:00



Ok my inetd.conf has the following
cvspserver stream tcp nowait root /usr/bin/cvs /usr/bin/cvs
cvs -b /usr/bin pserver

I try to login:


CVS password:
cvs [login aborted]: unrecognized auth response from linux: Usage: cvs
[cvs-options] command [command-options-and-arguments]

I get this same error every time.  /usr/bin is where the rcs binaries
are, /usr/local/cvsroot is where CVSROOT is.  cvs version 1.9

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

Try the following line instead:

cvspserver stream tcp nowait root /usr/bin/cvs cvs -b /usr/bin pserver

I also recommend that you use --allow-root=/usr/local/cvs (for the
proper CVS root directory) for security reasons.

Where did you get that line?  What I inferred from the info manual was:

     cvspserver  stream  tcp  nowait  root  /usr/bin/cvs
     cvs --allow-root=/usr/local/cvsroot pserver

(on a single line).  Worked the first time.  You have to change
the `--allow-root' to point to your repository, but that's about it.
Wait, you also need this in /etc/services :

    cvspserver      2401/tcp
