Creating a second CVS Repository - help

Creating a second CVS Repository - help

Creating a second CVS Repository - help

We have had a single CVS repository up for over 6 months, now I was asked to create a second cvs repository for an off-shoot project. I read the Cerderqvist documentation and it looked like all I needed to do was:
cvs -d <new directory> init
However, when I try to connect it says, "no such repository". What is up with that?

What is the correct way to set up a second CVS repository?

RE: Creating a second CVS Repository - help

To answer my own question. I got it working.

To have 2 different repositories on the same server you need to have two different directories that can be identified as CVSROOT. And then you have to modify your ports so that each repository is using a unique port (2401 is the default, I had to add 2402 in the /etc/services file and then modify the /etc/inetd.conf to have cvs use the new service.

This may not make a whole lot of sense, but post here and I'll help anyone do what I did.
