RE: CVS SSH connection timeout

Thanks much.  The problem was that my router had an IP filter to block port
22 (must have been caused by me screwing around, cause it was working last

Regarding the Groups and password.  I have created a Group called Developers
and added 3 users to it.  You mention "configure cvs to use those".  How do
I go about doing this?  There is no password file in my cvs repository or
any of the subdirectories under there  (the repository is located at
/home/cvsroot) .

Thanks much, I appreciate the help

So this proves that sshd is running.

Windows XP firewall, most likely.

I had this problem, perhaps caused by testing stunnel, the solution was to
(again) sshd.exe to the list of exceptions in Winblows firewall settings.

Just as a note, I'm using port forwarding at my router since my computer is
behind NATP.

Just create the user and group under windows, re-run mkpasswd and mkgroup
(just append the new user and group), then configure cvs to use those
(usually in the repository passwd file).
