Hello..
how can i assign the user permission for my CVS? i have use this command cvs chacl -u user -a read -R but the user still can commit the file even the user only has read permission.. the user supposed cannot commit any file isn't it? cvs lsacl shows that the user only has read permission..

another thing is, in my CVSROOT, i don't have the acl file. I found some tutorials but I just can't get it..
can anyone explain to me what should i do in order to set the user permission whether they can only read,read and write etc..

I am very new to all those things..hope anyone can help me..
Thank you in advance..

mohuza east,

Has your issue been resolved? I think CVS needs to run on a Unix machine to be able to create "readers", "writers" and the rest. I too am pretty new to this, came across a site that was talking about only user Permissions being set in CVS.

****************
To the ranchers,
I have currently installed the CVSNT Server/Client version on my system; created and initialised a repository but not able to connect to it from Eclipse end. The error is:

Error validating location: cannot connect to :pserver:*****@localhost:/cvs; IOException occured: no such repository.

Have tried other options mentioned in an older 2004 thread regarding setting and using CVS commands via DOS, and still encounter this error.

Is it not possible to run CVS server on a Windows machine for just one user?
