Hi All

I'm new to this list and have joined as I'm stuck getting CVSNT to run.
Normally I'd like to read what's happening on a list for a while before
posting, so if I'm stepping out of line or there is something else I should
have done before posting, I'd appreciate it if someone would point me in the
right direction. :-)

I was having some fun and games with CVSNT yesterday afternoon. I've made
some reasonable progress, but now seam to have hit a brick wall.

I've installed CVSNT on a machine we're intending to use as a server (by the
way does anyone know why it is suggested that you have a machine doing CVS
and nothing else?), created and initialised a repository and configured
pserver to use domain passwords by setting SystemAuth=es in the config

_Locally_ on the server machine I am able to check in and checkout CVSROOT,
this is how I changed config. I now want to be able to access the server
remotely from a Windows 2000 machine on the same network (eventually I'll
want to access CVSNT from a remote machine on the internet running Windows
98 - but let's walk before I can run ;-) ).

I've installed CVSNT on the client machine also and put the path to the
installed files in PATH for the system. I've also set up CVSROOT in the user
variables, thus:

:pserver:pg1 at Chorpcwks043:C:\Docume~1\pg1\CVS

pg1 - my user name.
Chorpcwks43 - The server running CVSNT
C:\Docume~1\pg1\CVS - Is the path to the repository.

I expected to be able to log into the server just by typing:

cvs login

on the client machine. It asks me for my password, which I enter and I get
the following response:

cvs [login aborted]: Error reading from server Chorpcwks043: -1

I'm a t somewhat of a loss at what to do next. Can anyone help, please?

I've also failed to find anywhere I can actually download WinCVS. Can anyone
point my in the right direction (preferably straight to the download link),
