Description navneet 2001-01-13 19:04:47 UTC
I have installed cvs on my Windows 2000 machine downloaded from
The authentication has been set to use the windows authentication.

When I connect, the login dialog askes me for the password but the command
executed gives me the following output.

LOGIN_CHECK: ${RUN} \"${CVS_EXE}\" checkout -c ${NUR}
LOGIN_CHECK: cmd /X /C "set CVSROOT=:pserver:navneet@localhost:d:\\cvsdata&&
cd /D \"D:\navneet\dbproj\"&& \"cvs\" checkout -c "
LOGIN_CHECK:stderr: [cvs checkout: authorization failed: server localhost
rejected access]
LOGIN_CHECK:stderr: [cvs checkout: used empty password; try "cvs login" with a
real password]
LOGIN_CHECK: Command failed.

Will be fixed in next dev build (#104). It is currently fixed in the main trunk,
so you can get it from there and build vcscvs module if you would like to get
the fix immediatelly.
Comment 2 Jiri Kovalsky 2001-02-05 14:47:59 UTC
Okay, it is now possible to login to pserver with local repository in windows
format like d:\cvsdata. CVSROOT is built correctly and therefore next mounting
already doesn't ask for password because there is correct entry in .cvspass file
Verified in Development build of NetBeans #118 (2001-02-05).
