I'm having difficulty connecting to just one repository. All the settings look ok -- machine, ssh, user name, password -- but when I try to connect (3.0a3 and 3.0a4) it says
The checkout could not be completed because an error -116 occurred.
Now it's been a long time since I had a repository of Mac error numbers, and I can't find a log on either machine which records what's happening.
Manual checkout -- cvs -d :ext:.... -- works. So I'm baffled.
Oh, and by the way thanks for cvs remove in 3.0a4!!
I can tell you that -116 corresponds to a memory manager error (size check failed)... but I don't have a clue about the cause.
Yes, I just dug up an ancient copy of MacErrors and found the same!
And on reading farther down the list, I realise it may be an SSH 2 problem. I see we don't have SSH 2 yet. If it's that (a) I apologise for raising it and (b) I'll shut up.
It would be easy to add SSH2 support using the methods in the Security framework, and we could also rip out all the SSH1 code in there. Look in SecureTransport.h (SSLRead/SSLWrite etc). Any takers?

I'm getting the same error when I boot my server as Leopard. It works when I boot from a Tiger partition. The repository is on a third partition.
I compared /private/etc/sshd_config on the two partitions, and found that the Leopard one said Protocol 2 where the Tiger one used the default value, Protocol 2,1. I tried changing the Leopard one to Protocol 2,1 and rebooting. Now the error message is "The checkout could not be completed because the CVS server sent back a bad response." rather than -116.
