We are having problem authenticating CVS client after LDAP was implemented
on the server.  After specifying CVSROOT in client side it says user name
and password does not exist. However when try the same approach using an
account created locally on the server (nonLDAP), it works fine.  We enabled
the trace from CVS client, but all we see is the following.

    Sample CVSROOT that is being used to connect is
      When successful:  I LOVE YOU
      When it fails:           I HATE YOU
That was all the trace we could get.
We are currently using CVS version 1.11.22  using Unix on  AIX 5.3
   Client is CVS plugin through Rational Application Developer V7.x .
   Corresponding eclipse version is 3.4

If there is no resolution to the issue, we may resort to  PAM

Can you please advise which version of CVS can be considered compatible and
stable for implementing PAM authentication ?

Have you worked out how to get the OS to let you do a normal login to an account that has it's information specified only in LDAP?

Once you get the OS to let you log in, then all I think you should have to do is let CVS fall back to the OS login (IIRC that is the default way with pserver).

Failing that, a work around I believe would be to use an SSH client and the :ext: protocol, which should gain you more ability to audit and is secured (for confidentiality and integrity) long haul connection.
