Nothing !

Nothing = probably -1 ?

ok see what i have :
it seems to be a handle pb as you say :

C:\Documents and Settings\david>cvsservice -test
CVS (Build 63) (Dec 17 2002) starting in test mode.
Repository prefix set to C:/cvs
Adding repository C:/cvs/depot
TEMP/TMP currently set to C:\cvstemp
Initialising socket...ok
Impersonation is enabled
Starting auth server on port 2401/tcp...
Socket Failed (Handle=ffffffff Family=23,Socktype=1,Protocol=6): * Une
adresse incompatible avec le protocole demandÚ a ÚtÚ utilisÚe.  (not fatal)
Starting named pipe server...
CVS initialised successfully

I translate * from french to english :
An inconciliable address for the asked protocol has been used ?

Pretty thanks > Tony
