Unable to create a Repository in the Server which is a linux machine

Unable to create a Repository in the Server which is a linux machine

Unable to create a Repository in the Server which is a linux machine

(OP)
Hello Sir,

  I am a new user of CVS. In my office the systems are connected in Lan. Linux is installed in one of the systems  and I wanted to set a CVS Repository on that system. I am using Windows XP and my system is a client cvs. I wanted to set a Repository in that system.

I have created a Repository in that machine using the following command

machine name: dev03
cvs -d /home/venkat init

then it has created a CVSROOT directory with some of the files. I am unable to 'add' a File in the Repository.

From the client side I am unable to login in the system.

I used cvs -d :pserver:@dev03:/home/venkat login

then it is asking for password but when I give the password it is giving a message Unknow host

Actually the CVS is not startted

Please try to solve my problem

RE: Unable to create a Repository in the Server which is a linux machine

Hi VenkatRastapuram

Use the program ping to see if the machine name can be detected. If the machine name cannot be detected, try to use its IP address. If the IP address works with ping, replace the machine name in the login string with the IP address.

Hope this helps
