Hi,

Is it possible to add a CVS client capability to K2000? We want to update a file on the \\k2000\petemp which is available by cvs. The cvs server can not push the file to the k2000, so we would like to update it periodicaly via cvs.

Any way to do this?

that directory should be availble to push to as a share

net use \\k2000\petemp /user:.\admin password

you may or may not need the ".\" in front of the user, When I run a batch it always connects with the .\

  • I know that, but I want the k2000 to update the files via cvs, not the cvs server to push it.
    • To make sure I am on right track, you want the k2000 to periodically to connect to another server share and copy files from that share to it's petemp area.

      You would need to talk to tech support on that. that would have to be something like a cron job that would run on the k2000's OpenBSD level.

      The biggest problem with a client would be is there even a client for OpenBSD to connect to that servers OS? If yes tech support would have to install it.

      Either of those modifications would go way side on updates. Do you have a tech station connected to both the kbox and the CVS server. You could create a task on that to do the job also.
  • "To make sure I am on right track, you want the k2000 to periodically to connect to another server share and copy files from that share to it's petemp area.

    Exact, i want the k2000 to be a cvs client.
    • definitely talk to tech support, that would have to be done at the OpenBSD level if it is even possible. I think your best solution would be to use the middle man approach with a tech station. You could have a task scheduled that runs a vbscript to compare the file(s) on one share to the other and copies them if there is a difference.
  • the client should be in the k2000 depending on the BSD version

    so I would talk to tech support to see if this is can be done and if updates will break it or not.
