CVS And Solaris
CVS And Solaris

First of all, I would like to thank Mr. Knowles for his fine help with my
previous post. I wish there was a way I could rate it.
Here's another scenario I need some help with: At school, we have a Solaris
machine we do all of our schoolwork on, and, of course, it has CVS. If I'm
at school (or communicating via SSH), I can check in / check out projects
from my cvs root on the Solaris machine to my Solaris account.
Here is where the problem comes in. I have WinCVS set up here at home and I
want to be able to do the same thing. I have SSH set up here and I use
WinCVS to communicate with a linux machine. Again, no problems. However,
when I try to use WinCVS to communicate with the Solaris machine, I get the
following error: cvs [checkout aborted]: end of file encountered. The
settings are the same for the Linux machine and the Solaris machine (of
course, the paths, etc. are different), but I still cannot access my
repository on Solaris. If I do the following:
ssh -l username host 'cvs' I get a "cvs: command not found"
but, if I do the following:
ssh -l username host 'ls' I get a list of my files. This tells me
SSH is working correctly.
My question: Has anyone encountered anything like this before? Is
there a way for the Solaris admin to disallow this kind of file transefers
from one machine to another (in other words, turn off "cvs" from external
machines)? Is there a way to check?
Thank you very much in advanced,
