Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

If you installed CVSNT according to my step-by-step guide then the
cvsroot (connection string) should be as follows:

  :pserver:administrator at fileserver:/test

because you have set the repository prefix to d:/cvsrepo, this part
should then never be added from the client side.

Test from the command line on the client PC as foloows:

set cvsroot=:pserver:administrator at fileserver:/test
cvs login
<enter password>
cvs ls -l

Now you should get a list of the modules on the server (basically only
one so far, namely the admin module CVSROOT)
