Since I received no responses to my original post, I assume no one else has
this problem (or this specific scenario). I am now trying to setup the
"sserver" protocol, but cannot find any instructions. I have looked quite a
bit (email list, wiki, ebook), and have found some instructions, but nothing
that addresses the client side. I have mostly windows clients, and a Linux
server. I have created the certificates, and have added them to the
/etc/cvsnt/PServer file. I have also copied Plugins.example to Plugins, and
have Pserver, Sserver, and Sspi uncommented, and set to 1 (I left the rest
commented). But when I run cvs info -r, it only shows pserver and sspi as
active protocols. I also do not know now to configure the client with the
certificate. Does anyone know if there are instructions for this?
