CVS Server and Client pserver access problem

CVS Server and Client pserver access problem

CVS Server and Client pserver access problem

Hi Guys,

I have a problem when I try to connect to my CVS server with :pserver: access mode. I have a Fedora Core 4
CVS server right configured (it works fine with access mode :local:), and a Windows client WinCVS with CVSNT.

When I try to connect from my client to the server with the string:

    cvs -d :pserver:cvsuser@discovery:/usr/local/cvsroot login

I get the following message from the server:

    cvs [login aborted]: unrecognized auth response from discovery: cvs pserver: cannot
        open /usr/local/cvsroot/CVSROOT/config: Permission denied

Why I get this message? Could anyone help me?

Thanks all
