I'm trying to install CVS-1.10 on an IBM RS/6000 running AIX-4.2.1. I
want to set it up to use the pserver access method so I can keep the
repository well away from the developer workstations. The problem is
that port 2401 is already taken in the /etc/services file. It contains
writesrv 2401/tcp # Temporary Port Number
Now I could do the dirty and change this line to
but before I do I'd like to know the consequences of my actions.
What is the writesrv service? Will it be happy if I put it on a
different port on just one server, or do I have to hack /etc/services
on my entire network? Will it be happy if it disappears completely from
I've seen a couple of postings saying that there's an AIX patch to fix
this problem, but I couldn't find it in the APAR database on IBM's web
Thanks in advance for any help. Sorry if this message is a duplicate -
the last copy I sent disappeared into the void.
