This is a multi-part message in MIME format. -- [ Picked text/plain from multipart/alternative ] Hi, I have been following a guide to installing CVSNT that was posted to this list a couple months back; it's been perfect up until the step that tells me to add my username to the passwd file: cvs passwd -a James I then type in the passwords and the following error comes up: Cvs [password aborted]: reading from server: error -1 Cvsservice -test produces the following: C:\Program Files\CVS for NT>cvsservice -test CVS 22.214.171.124 (Build 57a) (Mar 13 2002) starting in test mode. Repository prefix set to F:/LinkType Adding repository f:/linktype/cvsroot TEMP/TMP currently set to C:\DOCUME~1\James\LOCALS~1\Temp Initialising socket...ok Impersonation is enabled Starting auth server on port 2401/tcp... Socket Failed (Handle=ffffffff Family=23,Socktype=1,Protocol=6): An address inco mpatible with the requested protocol was used. (not fatal) Starting named pipe server... CVS initialised successfully As you can see there is an error there but it doesn't seem to cause it to fail. I have seen this problem diagnosed to a firewall in the past; I have not installed any firewalls on this PC and the XP firewall is disabled. Any help/ideas would be much appreciated. Thank you!
