1.11.1 works fine.


If the path is always the same, just the machine changes, add a CNAME to
your DNS


pserver and ntserver work together fine


cvsnt doesn't support unc paths?  See
http://devguy.com/cvsnt and search for UNC


It's a bad idea to put your sandbox on a network share.  Server to server
shares are fine.  Server to client shares are worse than bad.
