secure cvs server



  • 1. 4.9-STABLE, VMWare 2, and network oddness
    I've got an updated 4.9-STABLE setup running VMWare 2 (W2k SP4, etc) with the latest RTC driver (major improvement btw) and my kernel built with HZ=10000, which has done wonders to improve my VMWare performance across the board. -With the default HZ=100 VMWare is basically unusable, this is on a P4/2.4ghz box with 1GB RAM and very little other load. I've tried both bridged and host-only (with bimap NAT via IPNat) and both have the same problems. Now the W2k VMWare client seems to work well for most things, and even ping flooding it over my DSL line 400 miles away I get a solid 15ms ping response and zero packet loss. However...the point of this VMWare client is to run a Windows-only game server (MS's "Allegiance"). It looks like everything is fine until one actually tries to use the server... The game client is reporting 40ms pings but yet has unplayable lag issues (not being able to "zone" or do much of anything). Normally the symptoms shown by this setup are from someone trying to run this server over a low-bandwidth connection like DSL with 128kb max upload and have too many clients attached, but this setup is hosted at a colo on multi-homed 100Mbs connections with only two test players on the server. Is there anything more extensive I can do to debug the networking systems of this beast? TIA! -Zenin

    Does anyone know of an XML and DTD validator that is available in XML. I've found plenty of listings for non-validating parsers, but I just want to check that my DTD and XML are valid throughout. -- Bob London, UK echo Mail fefsensmrrjyaheeoceoq\! | tr "jefroq\!" ""

secure cvs server

Postby dave » Tue, 06 Apr 2004 07:15:05 GMT

    I'm wanting to offer cvs services to a select group of users from my
internal server. I need this to be as secure as possible using ssh. I've
tried cvsd, and although it starts when i try to log in, i'm using :pserver:
at the moment, i get the message, premature end of file from server, consult
above messages if any. There are none and nothing in the logs. When i tried
to use the :ext method i got the error:
login can only be used with the pserver method.
    If anyone has secure cvs services going behind a firewall to users on
the net please let me know.

i'm looking for a docu how to set up a secure cvs server from scratch,
that allows connections only over ssh.

If it's from scratch, I assume you don't have an existing repository.
Check subversion (svn), strongly recommended...

Depending on how complex your setup is likely to get, you might find some
inspiration in the FreeBSD setup:

As has been suggested, if you don't have any existing history, it might be a
lot easier and less painful to go for Subversion instead.

1.Using a Mac as CVS server, Linux and Mac clients

I need a CVS repository for source control.  Builds are for both Linux 
and Mac OS X (10.2), so my idea was to setup a repository on a Mac box, 
then access it remotely from the Linux environment, but I'm having no luck.

I'm on a small lan - I've given each box a unique IP address.
I can ping the Mac from Linux.
I can open an ssh session from Linux on the Mac.
I can't rcp files (Connection refused).  Any other network operations 
result in Connection refused.
I can see the Mac, and the files under my account from my Windows XP box.

I've turned on all the sharing stuff (system settings, sharing) on the Mac.
I don't really have a clue what I doing.  Can anybody point me to a 
resource for this kind of information?


2.CVS on remote server

I have on a remote Web server, a program that is being continually updated
via cvs.  Can I set up the remote server to receive the cvs updates?

3.connecting to cvs server

I've set up cvspserver on my linux machine which is behind a hardware
router.  The webserver seems to work fine from other machines behind
the router but I can't connect to the cvs server?  Any suggestions on
how I can debug this problem?  I'm very green to linux administration.
 I can telnet from the linux machine to the cvspserver so I'm quite
sure the that xinetd.d was set up correctly.  However I'm unable to do
this remotely.

Thanks for any suggestions.

You can set up an ssh-connection from A to B and forward a local port to
the CVS-port at C ; i don't know what port CVS uses, but if it was 2401
the command would look like 
	ssh -L 2401:systemC:2401 systemB
assuming the ssh2ssl works already; to access CVS at C you would direct
to localhost.

Why not just allow remote access to the cvs server itself?  Why do you 
want them to ssh in and work locally?  Doing that without actual 
accounts involves some voodoo, to be sure.
