CVS Server Setup

Crash course in setting up client-server CVS on a Linux UNIX server. This will authenticate users via the /etc/passwd file.

  1. Install CVS, should compile out of the box on Linux and produce no errors when you run make check.
  2. As root, edit /etc/inetd.conf to add the following (all on ONE line):
    cvspserver stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/bin/cvs cvs --allow-root=/usr/local/cvs-repository pserver
    
  3. As root, edit /etc/services to confirm or add the following:
    cvspserver     2401/tcp     # CVS remote server function
    
  4. As root, issue the command killall -HUP inetd
  5. Log on to some other machine and test the access using the cvs login command.
