I am trying to change the CVSNT port number but once I change it in the
server I am unable to connect from a remote client. I think I am setting the
CVSROOT variable incorrectly.

The output below shows the results I am getting.

After changing the server port to 2406, I cannot connect using my old
CVSROOT variable which is what I expected:

set CVSROOT=:pserver:bbeaumo at workstation-06/c//CVSRepository
cvs login
> Logging in to :pserver:bbeaumo at workstation-06:2401/c//CVSRepository
> CVS password: ********
> cvs [login aborted]: connect to
workstation-06(workstation-06.indcon.com):2401 failed:

However, if I try to set the port number in the CVSROOT, I get the following

set CVSROOT=:pserver:bbeaumo at workstation-06:2406/c//CVSRepository
cvs login
> Logging in to :pserver:bbeaumo at workstation-06:/c//CVSRepository
> CVS password: ********
> cvs [login aborted]: connect to workstation-06(workstation-06.indcon.com):

Am I setting the port number incorrectly in the CVSROOT?
