Installed GuildFTPd and was able to easily transfer large files. (note: both ends have high-speed internet connections). We use to use cvs in 'local' mode (please don't shout too loudly) by just doing a network share and opening the appropriate ports. Yes, terrible for security, robustness (dangling locks) and performance - but it worked until the ISP begain blocking those ports. I see that the pserver protocol is documented in the installation. I see two approaches: 1) trace the communication between WinCvs client and Server and see where the communication is breaking down (is there a facility for this? In worse case I could build sources and use debug mode if necessary - but I'm not familiar with the code base so this would be time consuming). 2) try another protocol. I'm going with two for the time being but would welcome comments and suggestions (at least reasonably polite ones ;-) Thx, -psj.
