Re: CVSROOT with hostnames

Hi Larry,

Here are the details.  I'm using Windows 2000 and, because I share
documents between my desktop and laptop, I decided that using cvs
would be a good idea.  So I'm using cvs v 1.11.4.

I have a bunch of data under cvs on a remote machine, which I'm
connecting to via SSH (so my CVS_RSH variable is set to ssh).  I have
my CVSROOT set as follows:


When I try to do a cvs checkout, I get the following:

C:\TMP3>cvs checkout Document
dustind@myhostname.org's password:
cvs server: Updating Document
U Document/desktop.ini
cvs server: Updating Document/Auto
U Document/Auto/toyota_tundra_log.xls
cvs server: Updating Document/Boats
Disconnecting: Corrupted MAC on input.
CVS [checkout aborted]: end of file from server (consult above
messages if any)


However, if I set the CVSROOT to use the actual ip address instead of
hostname, I have no problems.

It might be important to add that I use a dynamic ip hostname
resolution service (dyndns.org), and since I'm not sure how cvs is
making the queries, I don't know if it resolves the hostname for every
file it tries to checkout.  If it does, I'd imagine it's flooding the
dyndns.org servers.  But I would be surprised if it actually works
that way because of the obvious latency that adds to the whole

Any ideas?
