Many thanks. That gets me logged in as root. When I try to login via winCVS from my main pc, I get /usr/local/cvsroot login: no such repository cvs login: authorization failed: server 192.168.0.6 rejected access to /usr/local/cvsroot login for user cvs -d :pserver:cditty I was going to say that this might be because the CVSROOT is owned by root, but when I try to login via winCVS with root user, I get the same error message. Any other ideas?
