I'm looking for a simple configuration setup that will get our group 
working with WinCVS and cvsnt.  I installed cvsnt 1.11 on our server, 
sql_moc.drm.local under a login called 'projadmin'. I installed WinCVS 
1.2 on my machine.  The cvsnt server is running and the repository is 
in c:\edbdata\CvsRoot. 

When I attempt a login from WinCVS to the cvsnt server I get this error:
  cvs login 
  (Logging in to projadmin at sql_moc.drm.local)
  [login aborted]: unrecognized auth response from sql_moc.drm.local: 
server: E cannot open c:/edbdata/CvsRoot/CVSROOT/config: Permission 

  *****CVS exited normally with code 1*****

Here are my WinCVS preferences settings:
Enter the CVSROOT:
projadmin at sql_moc.drm.local:c:\edbdata\CvsRoot

"passwd" file on cvs server

Use Version:
cvs-1.10 (NT Server)

If I do a login without WinCVS to the server as projadmin I have 
permissions to create and modify the files in c:\edbdata\CvsRoot and 
c:\edbdata\CvsRoot\CVSROOT so I don't understand why WinCVS is getting 
Permission Denied. 

Any suggestions?
