Hi all, maybe someone of you can help? I am experiencing a problem with CVS-NT and tkCVS: There doesn't seem to be any valid setting of CVSROOT at all in order to connect to the remote CVSNT server with tkCVS. When I follow the instructions for the CVSNT server as given by http://www.cvsnt.org/readme.nt, I can successfully connect with WinCVS 1.2, but the same settings do not work with tkCVS (CVSROOT=:pserver:beyers at fe046:D:\CVSRoot). I have the GNU tools (from http://unxutils.sourceforge.net/UnxUtils.zip and http://unxutils.sourceforge.net/UnxUpdates.zip), Tcl 8.3.4, TK 8.3.4 and tkCVS 7.0.3 (see http://www.twobarleycorns.net/tkcvs.html) installed (I compiled Tcl and Tk myself with MS VC++ 6.0), as well as the latest CVS-NT server. The problem seems to be with the syntax of the CVSROOT string that tkCVS expects. Apparently, tkCVS considers everything between "@host:" and the first slash ("/") to be the port number to use. tkCVS doesn't seem to grok a path that starts with a drive letter. Although I tried many different settings, including UNC paths, various combinations of slashes, backslashes and colons, I didn't succeed in convincing tkCVS to accept any of them. Does anybody know a solution or workaround? Or what am I doing wrong? Many thanks in advance for any help or pointers!
